Recipes to Enjoy Your Tomatoes

Tomatoes Tomato Melissa Hemsley

You enjoyed the FAVE COURGETTE RECIPES roundup so here’s a bumper FAVE TOMATO RECIPE round up as we are happily in the thick of tomato season and I don’t know many people who don’t love tomatoes. Actually I do know a few who prefer them cooked than raw, so here are some speedy fresh tomato recipes and some slow roasted ones too. Hope you enjoy. And if your tomatoes aren’t ripe, keep them on the windowsill or in as much sun as possible, you’ll really taste the difference. P.S. Anyone else growing their own?  As of today, my tomato plants are still hard and green, fingers crossed, they’ll be ripening to red any day soon.

Burrata, Mint & Two Way Tomatoes
Burrata is certainly a luxury ingredient so for a very special occasion (in this case, a reunion with my friends over lockdown with their homegrown tomatoes). I like to serve this salad with the tomatoes *two ways*; half roasted and half fresh and raw.
