Some of them end up on a piece of olive bread from the local bakery, together with some pesto spread, olive oil, mozzarella cheese, salt, pepper and basil leaves. Yum!
Another favorite are cherry tomato salad with ruccola, feta cheese and red onion. Mix crumbled feta cheese, sliced cherry tomatoes and red onion in a bowl with some Extra Virgin Olive Oil and white wine vinegar and then you put teh mix on top of a bed of peppery ruccola. Yum yum!
Other less pretty tomatoes turn into Pamboli, my style, and get gulped by all three kids in no time. And two of them usually don't eat tomatoes... Do like this:
Use a mixer stick and mix 1-2 tomatoes to puree. Toast your slices of bread. It can be white or whole grain. Drizzle with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and cover with your mixed tomato puree. Salt and pepper to taste. For a more grown up version, rub the toasted bread with a garlic clove before drizzling Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add basil leaf for decoration and flavor. Simplicity rules...
What else do we do with our tomatoes? Most of the tomatoes disappear on their way from the vine to the bowl when picking them... I wonder where they go? Twink!
Oh, and I found this tomato poem... it is kind of cute actually. From my early days of blogging...
