I’m always teasing Lori about “going green” and using more natural organic ingredients. I’m really just teasing her, I’m far from perfect. I just try everyday to be some shade of green and think we can all just do our very best. So while our blogging gal with the wooden spoon is away, I thought I’d contribute a few of my favorite summertime recipes that come straight from my local CSA (community supported agriculture).
Baked Tomatoes (serves 4)
- 8 firm plum tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of raw sugar
After you have washed the yummy plum tomatoes, brush them with olive oil and set them in a pie plate that you have also oiled. Bake at 200 degrees for 4 hours. Sprinkle on the sugar and raise the heat to 300 degrees and bake for 30 minutes. The tomatoes will become browned and caramelized.
I like to serve this with steak and baked potatoes I make on the grill. I don’t usually turn the oven on for such a long period of time due to the energy consumption, so this is a real treat at my house. I usually make more than one batch because we gobble them right up!
