Simplicity! I always serve tomatoes with steaks to help the B vitamins digest. For years, I have heated a can of Italian plum tomatoes with a little Italian seasoning and a sliver of butter. Last night I used the remaining San Marzano plum tomatoes from another recipe and decided my U.S. palate would have welcomed a teensy bit of sugar. My brothers liked these better than the breaded stewed tomatoes MDM used to make (she exclaimed, "I SAW WHAT YOU DID!"). I serve these in their own bowl.
I got this recipe from watching a cooking program on the BBC where chef Antony Worrall Thompson prepared these. I was keen to try them and both my husband and I loved them. Don't be tempted to leave out the anchovy fillets, they really do impart a lovely taste (NOT FISHY !!). I also recommend trying to use tomatoes of equal size in order that they will cook equally, and also for the sake of a nicer presentation. Preparation time includes 20 minutes resting time for the tomatoes.
This is the first Rachel Ray recipe that I have tried, and that I actually liked! This was a super, simple recipe, and I wanted to post it because I thought everyone would enjoy it. I'm not a spinach person, but this was really good.
Tasty baked tomatoes that I often make in the summer when I am dieting. Only 1 WW point for a whole tomato! I found recipe years ago in The Calculating Cook, a gourment cookbook for diabetics and dieters.
Becca of Byron..my sister in law...shared this recipe with us. It is DELICIOUS! I love it...and hope that you will give it a try. If you like foods from the deep South, you will love this Georgia "Mater Pie" recipe.
From Southern Living 1981. A person can only have so many magazines around the house before you get that over-run feeling. I'm cleaning out my stacks and posting the recipes that I've tried and wish to keep here.
These are whole tomatoes, stuffed with an herb and crumb topping and baked in cream, which makes a lovely sauce. They are very rich, and I serve them with garlicky, robust meats, like lamb or garlicky chicken... Adapted from, "California The Beautiful Cookbook."
Summer on a platter! This salad is lovely in it's rustic simplicity. The tarragon adds a delicate anise note, different than the usual basil and tomato combination. Just add crusty chunks of bread to soak up the aromatic dressing, it's practically a meal in itself. Enjoy...
