Bakers Dozen: Best Tomato Recipes

We have been growing our own tomatoes for nearly fifteen years, whether it was on our window sill at home, our greenhouse at the allotment plot  in Scotland or here, in our back garden in Wales, the passion for trying to grow some of our own, continues.   

This year the tomatoes are not as plentiful, but they are still tasty and bit like the courgettes, every year I wonder what am I going to do with all these tomatoes, other than making the usual soups , chilli red tomato chutneys, sauces and lasagne.  So if you are looking for some inspiration and are looking for something different than you have come to the right place.
First up is Rosemary Elliot's vegan Bloody Mary Jelly 
Next we have an Oven Baked Za'atar Tomato and Potato Frittata
Something light to snack on Pan Con Tomate - Catalan Tomato Bread

  1. I need to plant tomatoes again. I always make tomato soup as it freezes so well :)

    1. I do like homemade tomato soup, but would never think of freezing it. Worth doing for have thinking now...perhaps making some sauces for pasta....mmmm

  2. fifteen years of tomatoes is amazing! and your recipes really are inspiring - I love the farinata and the curry - but all look great. It is not tomato season here - we have only had a few cherry tomato plants but maybe will get another next year. I can only dream of a tomato crop like yours!

    1. I know, i had to think - i thought it was two decades, but not quite. I need to make farinata again, D's not that keen on it, but i love it. One day Johanna, one day...

  3. Though I don't grow my own, I love tomato season here in Michigan. Mostly I've been making salads or just simply sliced tomatoes (with herbs, the only food we do grow). But I did make gazpacho and tabouli salad -- two great tomato dishes from the Mediterranean that you did not mention. Your dishes all look great. Happy Tomato Season To You!

    1. Locally grown and homegrown tomatoes are exceptional indeed. I was never a fan of gazpacho, but a couple of years back we went to Brighton and i had the most amazing gazpacho, so should make some really. As for taboulleh - i do like it and it has featured on my blog before,
      but i tend to think its more herb heavy than tomato, still nice to be reminded.
