Tomato Butter (Tomatsmor)

"This flavoured butter is from Norway. Traditionally you serve it cold with hot grilled or fried fish. I like to serve it with lentil soup and nutty brown bread. Allow the butter to chill before serving. Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005."

    Yum! I can see myself using this on so many things. I tried it first on brown bread and this morning I used on whole wheat english muffins. I will have to try it on grilled fish too. Thanks for a recipe I will use again.

    Occ a little recipe packs a lot of flavor & this is 1 of those. I halved the recipe, liked it & thot garlic would be a super add for it. Then I did it again (let my creative juices flow) & made salsa butter using 2 tbsp of the tomato puree & 1 tbsp of salsa solids. Both were so yummy! Thx for posting this little recipe w/big impact. :-)

    Easy and pretty. Piped in individual swirls and froze for future use to impress guests! Thanks for such an easy recipe that will make me look really good!


I live with my husband and 2 cats in Worcester Park; a quiet typical 1930s suburb (which no one has ever heard of!) about 12 miles South West of London. I'm a fair weather gardener and as my husband is a vegetarian I grow a few easy vegetables, such as tomatoes and peppers, mainly in containers. My husband loves growing flowers, the brighter the better, and we have a pretty garden as a result. Our cats, Araminta and Purrl, like it too! I do a lot of cooking and try to keep our diet as healthy and varied as possible. Although I work full time, I use very little in the way of pre-prepared foods. This is partly because of the limited choice of vegetarian meals, which I think are overpriced anyway; but mainly because I like to know what goes in my food! I love using the Internet for all the great ideas it gives me. Last year I participated in the Zaar World Tour (under my previous public name Caroline Blakey), which was great. Mr B and I tried lots of new foods and discovered new favourite meals. Researching recipes for the Tour was really interesting, however as I didn't have time to try them all, some were posted untested. I'm still working my way very slowly through them. To make matters worse I keep seeing other recipes I want to save and have also participated in Zaar world Tour II. So many recipes, so little time to make them! <img src=""> My 'rules' for posting recipes are a) if I wouldn't make a particular recipe, I won't post it and b) if my husband wouldn't eat it, I won't post it. This means that all my recipes are vegetarian friendly. As you will see from the number of recipes saved in my cookbooks, I particularly enjoy making jams and chutneys; I'd say it was one of my favourite hobbies. We always have a good supply of home preserves; my friends and work colleagues are well supplied too. If we won the lottery (say £5m, as a good number) we'd like to give up work, move to the country and buy a place with a bit of land. In my dreams this would be a manor house or old vicarage, with a walled garden, an orchard where I could keep hens, a vegetable garden, etc, etc, etc! In my more realistic moments (the £1m win perhaps) I would like to run a B&B, perhaps offering Vegetarian taster weekends. Luckily it costs nothing to dream.......I’d also love more time to read, do embroidery, learn a language, see more of the countryside; and of course play on Zaar.
