For me, tomato is the most underrated vegetable. It's the kind of vegetable that you eat without even knowing that you just ate it, like in a sandwich :) But there's so many things you can make with tomatoes and they can be delicious even on their own.
I try to avoid buying tomatoes in the supermarkets as they don't have so much flavour, it's much better to get them from the market and basically the rule is - the uglier and crazier shaped the tomato is, the better it will taste!
It's the best way of getting rid of stale bread that I know! It's not the real panzanella that you'll eat in Tuscany but I think this recipe is even better! It takes minutes to prepare and is really delicious - trust me! You'll find the recipe here!

Caramelized Tomato Tarte Tatin
What a great idea - savoury tarte tatin! The recipe also involves Kalamata olives which I love, plus if you use ready pastry, you'll make it in 20 minutes! Get the recipe here!

Why not?! I think it's a great and healthy alternative to ketchup and I can almost feel the taste of it on a fresh, crispy baguette :) Find the recipe here!
