T is for Tomato

Nicole and I have had many a heated debates over whether tomatoes or cucumbers are the superior vegetable. The answer, obviously, is tomatoes. Raw in a salad, slow cooked and sweet, simmered for pasta, with lentils and coconut milk for a curry, I would be lost without them in my fridge. Although my plants have now withered and died after a bumper crop of cherry tomatoes, and then no rain for months, Nosh has Truss tomatoes for $1.99 this week and I have been going to town with slow roasting!

In the space of an hour, they go from this …


to this…

    Anna, did these with dinner tonight. Quinoa was rather clumpy, chicken was not as hot as it could be, but the tomatoes… perfect!

    It’s quite funny really, we cook like this all the time at home. I don’t know how many time my mums cooked this. Delicious!
