We are smack dab in the middle of tomato season, arguably the best fruit on the planet (don’t at me). What other fruit can you think of that can transform both pizza AND pasta? What other fruit contains more lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, that may help protect against cancer and heart disease? What other fruit is also considered a vegetable?
For all the tomato lovers out there, now is our time to shine! Whether you grow them fresh in your garden, buy them at your local farmers market, or grab them at Trader Joes, it's the perfect time to stock up on tomatoes. And there are so many ways to revolve your meal around this magical botanical gift.
Here are a few of our favorite tomato recipes. Enjoy! *chef’s kiss*
