How often do you make recipes with tomatoes? One of the most versatile fruits available today, many people don’t know the tomato was actually feared back in the 1700s according to the Smithsonian website. It was thought tomatoes made the aristocrats sick; so much so that some died.
It was eventually discovered that when tomatoes were placed on a pewter plate, they would leach lead from the plate. Whew, that’s a relief! How terrible would it be if they really were poisonous? No pizza or spaghetti?
Thankfully, tomatoes are known to contain all four carotenoids as well as potassium and vitamin C, making them great for your health. Not to mention, they’re pretty delicious!
I just returned from a Viking Cruise (more to come soon!) and one of the side dishes was a half of a roasted tomato. I’m not sure how it was prepared (trust me- I’m going to find out!) but it was wonderful!
Enjoy these recipes all using scrumptious tomatoes. But please, no serving them on pewter serving plates!
