Is there anything better than a bright red, juicy tomato at the peak of freshness? This rare commodity might be coming to a supermarket near you… all year long. Scientists may have found a gene that makes tomatoes taste good no matter what season we’re in. Let’s break that down: They have identified flavor deficiencies in modern tomatoes and have determined how to molecularly breed them to taste fresh and ripe. Sounds a little too good to be true, but the discovery is still a work in progress, and you won’t find any of these “perfect” tomatoes in stores just yet. In the meantime, these recipes prove that you can’t go wrong with a fresh ruby-red (or yellow) tomato that’s in the market right now.
When you think of good old-fashioned cobbler, you probably don’t think of tomatoes, but this recipe will change your mind. The combination of cast-iron roasted cherry tomatoes and fresh garlic and herbs, topped with homemade whole-wheat biscuits, will bring joy to any Southern cook.
If you thought the combination of tomatoes and cheese couldn’t get any better, think again. Tomatoes topped with bread crumbs and Parmesan, then cooked in the broiler, creates a mouth-watering, crispy topping. And the best part is that this dish is ready in fewer than 15 minutes. We’re not saying it’s better than pizza, but it’s a close second.
Watching your cheese and bread intake but can’t resist pizza…
