Sunday Snapshots: Forgotten Tomato Recipes

by Spicie Foodie on August 12, 2012

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.

Both those dishes look delectable. There’s something about tarts in the summer but they are working well down here in winter too – just with different fillings.

Thanks Suzanne! I agree, and we eat tarts year round.

Looks like it we are playing together with tomatoes today -))) I am thinking now to make the tomato tart, only I have to come up with good crust for my diet-) Nice talking to you.

Yes, that’s funny:) You could try making an olive oil pastry-it is slightly better than butter. Thanks!

I love the simplicity and beauty of this tart. With so few ingredients everyone should make this. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Vicki! I think many of us forget how a few simple ingredients can really be turned into a scrumptious feast.

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?

Hi Eha,
It is a dried white rose. You have such a great eye for details, I love that:)

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).
