Our 7 most delicious tomato recipes
Oven-roasted, boiled, pureed, steamed, or just eaten raw: there are a number of ways that we can incorporate more tomatoes into our diet. We bring you 7 dishes from our recipe finder where this tasty fruit is the star of the show.
1. Halibut with roast tomato and herb dressing
Serve your halibut on a dreamy bed of cherry and sundried tomatoes for a dish to remember. Pippa Middleton, who included this dish in her book Heartfelt: Over 100 quick and easy recipes for a healthy heart, said: "The tangy tomato dressing sets [the halibut] off perfectly, while home-pickled onions add a bit of texture."
2. Moroccan-spiced tomato sauce with roast vegetables and chickpeas
Looking for ways to up your vegetable intake? This dish takes inspiration from North Africa, using Ras El Hanout to spice up slices of courgettes, butternut squash and pepper. A simple can of cherry tomatoes helps gives this recipe an even richer flavour.
