Tomatoes are a foundation cooking ingredient year-round. Having a handful of great, go-to, tomato recipes is key. Source fresh, ripe heirloom tomatoes in the summer and into autumn. Use canned, preserved, or sun-dried tomatoes throughout the rest of the year. I love to use deliciously beautiful lycopene-rich tomatoes in endless ways, and I’ve highlighted some of my favorite tomato recipes below. Enjoy!
