Veggie of the Week: Tomato

Aaaah it sure feels good to feature the tomato as our veggie of the week. The tomato is without a doubt one of the most versatile veggies out there, here are a few easy ideas to really elevate this little red gem!

1. Breakfast – Not the grilled tomato on the Full English but rather the Spanish snack pan con tomate. Toast a slice of good bread and rub it vigorously with a cut clove of garlic. Do the same with half a ripe tomato, rubbing until all you have left is the skin. Sprinkle over salt and olive oil, scoff with strong coffee.

2. Lunch – At their peak, it’s a shame to put them in anything other than a simple sliced tomato salad. A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar and a sprinkle of flaky sea salt is really all you need. Needless to say, torn basil and ragged clouds of creamy mozzarella are classic additions.

3. Dinner – They can be cooked down into rich sauces and stews but also make a wonderful gratin, thinly sliced, seasoned with salt, pepper and oil, and alternated with layers of sliced courgette. Bake for 30 mins before topping with parmesan and breadcrumbs for a further 15 mins..
