For today’s Seasonal Recipe Round-Up featuring tomatoes, I’ve gone back through my archives and pulled out lots of recipes using both fresh and preserved tomatoes. Hopefully some of these are new to you and will give you ideas for using your tomatoes in new and delicious ways. Enjoy this tomato season. If you’re not yet in it (like me), let’s hope it hurries up and arrives soon.
Mediterranean Cucumber-Tomato-Mint Salad. I make this a lot during the summer when tomatoes and cucumbers are in season. Like, daily!
Cucumber-Tomato Salad with Kefir (or Yogurt). Same idea as above, but toss the salad in yogurt or kefir instead of olive oil and lemon juice. Season with dill or basil, sea salt and pepper.
Tomato Sandwiches! My sourdough pocket bread comes from the Sourdough eCourse or Sourdough A to Z eBook. Load the halves up with hummus or kefir/yogurt cheese and cucumbers and tomatoes. Or what about my mom’s award-winning falafel, tahini sauce, tomatoes, and cucumbers? Any way you fill them, they’re delicious!
Quinoa Garden Salad. Using the dump method (dump all ingredients in bowl and toss), this salad lets you use everything your garden (or market) produces!
Arabic Meatloaf. This meatloaf, kiftet batatta (meatloaf with potatoes), is topped with potatoes and tomato sauce for an easy main dish and features spring parsley.
Nikki’s Lacto-Fermented Roma Fresca. Use Roma Fresca on top of steaks, fish, or chicken for a mouth watering combination. Or, with chips as a mild salsa. You’ll find more fermented salsa recipes in my book, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Fermenting Foods and in my online class in Lacto-Fermentation.
Erin’s Sprouted Lentil Slaw. Delicious! A highly popular recipe here.
Smoked Salmon and Rice Salad. Another winner from Erin. Her recipes are lovely, aren’t they?
Canning Tomatoes. This is a very old post from when I was new to blogging. Consider yourself warned.
At this point, my tomato plants have tiny little green tomatoes, but nothing ripe. Hurry up, please — tomatoes are a favorite and I can’t get enough of them!
