Sunday Snapshots: Forgotten Tomato Recipes

Tomato Recipes, Sunday Snapshots, Spicie Foodie

Since tomato season is in full swing I thought I’d share some forgotten tomato recipes. They were both meant to be shared last tomato season but somehow got overlooked. I plan on making both of these again over the following week. Maybe I will reshoot photos for the recipes, that is if time permits. So in the mean time please excuse the not so great photos. I can only embed one recipe per post so I apologize for only having one print-out option available.

Have a happy Sunday everyone! I’ll be back tomorrow with another recipe and better photographs.

The next recipe is for my Roasted Tomato Basil Tart. I used a mixture of regular tomatoes, cherry and Dutch kumato tomatoes. Please feel free to use whichever variety you like.

    Love the look of that tomato-basil tart: would not mind a bite just now! In your beautiful first photo are you just being artistic with a rose on the way to heaven or is that actually a woodrose? Can’t imagine these growing where you are?

    Yum. I’m obsessed with tomatoes and both of these recipes look great. I might try the tart this week (and once again attempt the olive oil dough).
