Decadent Tomato Recipes From FoodGawker

stuffed-tomatoBy Vanessa Richins

I am a very visual person.

Like many of you, I get a gleam in my eyes when a new catalog comes in the mail because I have been given a new treat.

The vibrant colors and shapes just pop off the page and keep me riveted.

I felt the same way when I discovered FoodGawker. It’s a website where people can submit their recipes to their directory. The page appears as row after row of luscious foods.

I decided to see what they had listed for tomatoes. Here are some of the recipes I suggest you try based on their picture :

Sun-Dried Tomato, Basil, and Parmesan Muffins

I think most of us think of muffins as sweet, but these will prove that savory is just as good. Sun-dried tomatoes are from heaven, as well as Parmesan cheese. Match it with basil and it’s perfection.

Pininoa Tomato Sauce

This is basically an upscale ketchup with only 5 ingredients. This site featured an interesting way to plate a meal – artfully drop the sauce around the plate, and garnish with tomato blossoms.

Black Bean Quinoa Salad with Cherry Tomatoes

Quinoa is a healthy grain that is packed full of protein and nutrients. Pair with cherry tomatoes and black beans for a nutritious supper.

Green Tomato Chocolate Cake

Who would have ever thought that one use for those green tomatoes you pick before a frost could be a chocolate cake!

Take a trip over to FoodGawker. What tomato recipes do you want to try?
