12 tomato recipes from my blog archive

I hope that you are having a nice week. I'm starting to feel more hopeful, as it's already Thursday, can't wait for the weekend to begin!

Today I took a look into my blog archives and collected some of my past tomato recipes together in this post, as I am celebrating The VegHog's Tomato Festival this week. There are still a few more new recipes to come as well.

So here are 12 of some of my favourite tomato recipes. I love it how versatile tomatoes are, I hope you'll like this compilation.
Tomato Focaccia– A beautiful homemade focaccia recipe inspired by the Forest Feast vegetarian cookbook and so easy to make.

Vegetarian Spaghetti Bolognese – A pasta classic, which is very tasty as the vegetarian version made with loads of tomatoes, meat-free mince and baby button mushrooms. 

Fried heirloom tomato pizza – Pizza with spelt crust and a new method of pizza making, first pan-fried then baked under the grill in the oven. Nice with quality heirloom tomatoes.

Tomato and basil risotto – This is a summery, succulent and light risotto and a bit different to the ones that I would usually make. 

Rye Bruschetta – Rye bread, tomato and garlic are a great and filling combination, wonderful as breakfast or lunch. 

Mixed summer salad – Summer salad with tomatoes, fresh garden peas, mixed salad leaves, pine nuts, great to eat in the summer in many variations. 

Oven Tomatoes – This is a nice idea to make sundried tomato style oven tomatoes at home. What a tasty side dish they make with an intense tomato taste. 

Butternut squash and pepper lasagne – Veggie lasagne with char-grilled butternut squash slices, a basic tomato sauce and homemade lasagne sheets. 

Heirloom tomato and pesto barley flatbreads – Homemade barley bread topped with pesto, mozzarella and tomatoes. This is my kind food! 

Savoury spelt crêpes with cheese and tomato – Filled savoury crêpes are such a perfect breakfast and cheese and tomato are a dream filling for them.

Tomato tart – I quite often make this kind of easy tarts with cheese and vegetables. When using ready made pastry, they are easy yet tasty weekday meals or great to take with to a picnic or even to serve at a small gathering. 

Insalata Caprese – Probably the best summer food ever! I have posted this dish also several times, because it's one of my favourite classics.

  1. Each and everyone looks lovely, but its the Tomato Focaccia that is calling my name. I don't think I am going to get round to sharing a new recipe by Sunday for your Tomato Festival (as my home growing tomatoes are still very green), but I may get a chance to write up a similar post to this to link up, I hope this is okay with you.

    1. Yes, that would be lovely, if you post something tomato related, but don't worry, it doesn't have to be this week. I like that focaccia very much and it's also very simple to make.


Thanks for reading! I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions from you.
