Eat plant strong this summer!
Couple of things about tomatoes. Never put them in the refrigerator. Keep them in a cool spot in the kitchen. They chemically lose their flavor in the fridge (Don't believe it? Google it). You can go through the therapeutic process of canning the tomatoes to preserve the summer....or, now write this down. Open a large freezer ziploc bag, place several whole tomatoes in the bag and freeze them. They won't slice well for sandwiches, but you don't put canned tomatoes on sandwiches anyway. When thawed, grate them on a box grater over a bowl and enjoy great, fresh tomato sauce.
I can't get enough fresh tomatoes. As you may have seen in my food pics, I love tomatoes, basil and avocados on whole wheat toast for breakfast. Or a tomato sandwich with basil and vegan mayo (the oil free version under recipes on the blog). Chop up some tomatoes, basil, fresh garlic, balsamic vinegar and a little sea salt with a lot of cracked pepper on toasted whole wheat baguettes...great appetizer.
Feel free to post any ideas you have for using summer vegetables. One of the most requested things I make is my summer ratatouille.
