“Three tomatoes are walking down the street. A papa tomato, a mama tomato, and a little baby tomato. Baby tomato starts lagging behind. Papa tomato get angry, goes over to baby tomato, squishes him … and says, “Ketchup!”
~ Uma Thurman as Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction
Well, we’re not making ketchup today (nor are we watching Pulp Fiction, which is a shame, because I heart that movie really hard) … but we are turning tiny cherry tomatoes into even tinier flavor bombs that scream, “Summer is here!”
As if picked-from-the-vine tomatoes weren’t already delicious enough, roasting them brings out their natural sweetness and takes that ubiquitous summer tomato flavor to a whole new level … leaving you with something so simple — yet so elegant — your taste buds won’t believe it.
See what I mean?
So, what can one do with these little bites of summer? Namely, anything.
Add them to a pasta dish, use them as a sandwich topping or in salsa, or just eat them as a snack … no matter what you to with them, your taste buds will be screaming, “Summer is here!”
