Tasty Tomato Recipes
I always forget whether tomatoes are technically a fruit or a vegetable, though I don’t think it matters much; they’re a nutrition powerhouse either way. Here are some tomato recipes to inspire your summer snacking.
1) Baked tomato and egg cups
This is a hearty, healthy and gourmet-looking breakfast. All you need are a few tomatoes, a couple eggs and some fresh herbs and you’re cooking!
2) Healthy tomato basil soup
Greek yogurt and almond milk make this a creamy soup without all the extra fat.
3) Cheesy spinach muffin
Guaranteed these savoury muffins are unlike anything you’ve ever made before. Spinach, feta, cheddar and tomatoes are the shining ingredients of this tomato recipe.
4) Oven-dried tomatoes
Money-savvy cooks listen up! This recipe is for DIY oven-roasted tomatoes so you no longer have to spend extra money making those fancy recipes (or to indulge in a gourmet snack). Throw your homemade oven-fried tomatoes on summer salads, on top of avocado toast or as garnish on barbecued chicken or salmon.
5) Balsamic chicken and tomatoes
