Just in time for the season. If you like tomatoes like I do, you will love this tomato pie. In this tomato pie recipe I used Kumato tomatoes. It’s not necessary to use these tomatoes, any tomato will do.

Ingredients

  • 1 Sheet Puff Pastry
  • 6 Kumato Tomatoes, sliced
  • ½ onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 3 oz. Mozzarella Cheese
  • ½ oz. fresh basil chiffonade
  • 1 tbsp. vinegar
  • ½ cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. In a small pan, sauté the onion and garlic in 1 tablespoon of olive oil until translucent, add the 1 tbsp mustard and set aside.
  2. Put the puffed pastry sheet in a pie dish.
  3. Layer in half of the sliced tomatoes, and season with salt and pepper. If you don’t like a “juicy” pie, put you sliced tomatoes in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Set them aside for about 1 hours so the liquid can drain
  4. Spread the onion mixture over the tomatoes. Add the mozzarella cheese and half of the basil. Layer the remaining tomatoes, and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle 1 tbsp of olive oil and vinegar over the tomatoes, top with the remaining basil.

Tomato Soup

Contrary to popular belief, tomatoes have been grown as a food since the 16th century, though they have in various times and places been regarded as both poisonous and decorative plants.

The Italian name for the tomato is pomodoro, meaning “apple of love” or “golden apple,” because the first to reach Europe were yellow varieties.

Tomatoes were not cultivated in North America until the 1700s, and then only in home gardens. In colonial America (1620-1763), tomatoes were thought to be poisonous and were grown as an ornamental plant called the “love apple.” The odor of the leaves made people think it was poisonous. Actually tomatoes are very healthy. According to several studies, eating tomatoes and tomato-based products, as well as cooked and canned varieties, reduced the risk of several cancers, including prostate, lung and stomach. Other evidence found benefits for pancreatic, colorectal, esophageal, cervical, and breast cancers.

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds ripe plum tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups chopped yellow onions (2 onions)
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 (28-ounce) canned plum tomatoes with their juice
  • 4 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 quart ( 4 cups) chicken stock

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Toss together the tomatoes, 1/4 cup olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread the tomatoes in 1 layer on a baking sheet and roast for 45 min.
  2. Saute onion, garlic and red pepper flakes in 2 tbsp olive oil and butter, till slightly brown.
  3. Add the canned tomatoes, basil, thyme and chicken broth. Add the oven roasted tomatoes including the juice. Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered for 40 min. If you like your soup smooth you can put the soup in the blender and liquefy it or use your immerse blender. Strain the soup.
