Easy tomato recipes to make now
Now the weather is heating up, tomatoes are out in abundance. Ripe, red, juicy and bursting with flavour, tomatoes will enhance meals beyond just salads. If you’ve been wondering what you can make with fresh tomatoes, here are some easy tomato recipes to make now.
What tomatoes are best to cook with?
Gone are the days when the only tomatoes you could find in the grocery section of supermarkets were standard red field tomatoes and possibly Roma tomatoes from your local Italian or Greek grocer.
Now, you’d be forgiven for being confused. At the last count, there were about 11 or 12 varieties available to buy. Field tomatoes sit next to truss, cocktail truss, grape, kumato, gold grape, heirloom and a colourful tomato medley.
So which one do you use in the kitchen? Thankfully the answer is easy: all of them!
Whether you whizz them up to make a sauce, douse them in olive oil and roast them whole, pan fry them until they split at the seams and get extra juicy, these recipes with fresh tomatoes are easy and delicious.
