Let’s be honest—store-bought sun-dried tomatoes tend to be a bit leathery and tough, without much flavor. They seem like a faded, desiccated memory of a tomato, rather than a fragrant, intensified taste of summer days. Homemade “sun-dried”1 tomatoes, on the other hand, are another thing entirely: fragrant and chewy but not tough, with complex, concentrated tomato flavor and a slight sweetness.

Slow baked in the oven makes these oven dried tomatoes the best. Drizzle with olive oil, toss with spices to make the perfect appetizer or side dish.

Not a labor-intensive process, but certainly a lengthy one. Of all the methods for preserving tomatoes, drying them in the oven is the least fussy. Plus, drying preserves their sweetness and flavor best. And these flavorful little gems cost so little when made at home; it’s worth the time they need to achieve that chewy, raisin-like texture.

One thing I can guarantee is the appetizing fragrance in your house of tomatoes slowly roasting to dried perfection, especially if you choose to season them with garlic and herbs.

In the meantime, think of all the tomato bread, salads, pizzas, pasta, pestos and sauces you’ll be able to make once they’re done. It’s tempting to prematurely devour those tiny little sweeties, hot, pungent, sweet & salty with good virgin olive oil as they are, spread on crackers or toasts.

This is one of the best spinach dishes I’ve tasted. This super easy creamy spinach soufflé is a treasured recipe from my childhood. Actually, it was my childhood favorite. My mom’s version was made with eggs (egg yolks and beaten egg whites to give volume), but I’ve updated the recipe to make it faster and easier.

Surprisingly, my vegetable-avoiding son loves this spinach soufflé. This one and this Carrot soufflé are the only veggies that he eats. I have a feeling this spinach soufflé will become one of your family favorites, too.

 

A hint of sweetness from the Dried Cranberries with the crunchy of the Sliced Almonds and the deep, nutty flavor with a slight crunch of the Poppy Seed will bring this creamy coleslaw lots of flavour.

Coleslaw is always on the bottom rung of most people dish desires. But this has turned out not to be the case, this creamy coleslaw recipe always, gets not just one, but several big, Big, BIG thumbs up from everyone. You’ll have to try it for yourself to believe me.

 

Slow-roasting tomatoes bring out such sweet, intense flavor. You get almost all of the concentrated flavor of sun-dried tomatoes but without the drying.

Mixed with tons of garlic, oregano, and fresh basil, I don’t know how it works… but it tastes like heaven in your mouth. They take on an intensely deep flavour after roasting and can be used in many different ways. It’s perfect to eat with toast, bread, crackers, salads, pasta, goat cheese, bocconcini… you name it.

My mom makes it since I was a child and everyone loves it.

It’s easy, Fast, and colorful. It looks so festive that I decided to publish it for the New Year’s Eve parties.

Arroz à Grega (“Greek-style rice” – Although given the name “Greek”, in Greece there is no such rice dish) is a Brazilian dish, consisting of rice (of course) cooked with raisins and small pieces of vegetables, the most common of them are small cubes of carrot, green peas, sweet corn and green onions. It can get small bits of ham (smoked or not), sausage and/or turkey breast (smoked or not), among other processed meat supposed to be eaten cold, but if chicken meat or shrimps are used, it is instead known as risotto.

 

Tabule (also Tabbouleh, tabbouleh or tab(b)ouli) is a vegetarian dish (sometimes considered a salad) made of bulgur, tomatoes, finely chopped fresh mint, parsley, green onion, and onion, all tossed and seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice, and salt.
