It's been a great season for tomatoes and you're probably getting tired of BLTs, spaghetti and salsa. Here are some fun suggestions:

  • 1

    Roast Them

    They'll store in the freezer for months after roasting and they're excellent on toast or as a side dish.

  • 2


    Add dehydrated tomatoes to soups, sauces and noodle salads.

  • 3


    Make tomato soup or minestrone, or add them to any chili or stew.

    Cantonese Tomato Beef Stirfry

    Don't forget the Chinese invented ketchup (they called it catsup). Chinese tomato dishes are delightful.

    I've disliked 9 out of 10 gumbo I've ever had, but the 1 out of 10 was incredible... so find a recipe you like.

    Make Chinese catsup

    Most Americans don't know how to do this. Some don't even realize what they're ordering at their favorite Chinese restaurant is catsup. Learn how, use up your tomatoes, and impress your friends.

    I'm not going to suggest a chili recipe because that's like suggesting a religion. You'll have to go on your own spirit quest to find a chili recipe you like.
