Ingredient Spotlight: Tomatoes

Our tomatoes are ripening!  Tomatoes are unbelievable right off the vine, and we love to use tomatoes in just about everything we make. 

Tomatoes, as we well know, are high in lycopene a great antioxidant.  But, did you also know that tomatoes (a botanical fruit related to the eggplant and potato) are a great source of fiber and nutrients like Vitamin A, C and potassium.  They have been shown to reduce your cancer risk – especially for lung, breast, colon and even skin cancer.

Here are some of our favorite ways to enjoy tomatoes:

Chicken Pesto Sandwiches

Caprese Stuffed Dinner Rolls
