Savory Tomato Crisp Recipe wtih Heirloom Tomatoes from White On Rice CoupleThis is a continuing series we’re sharing for Summer on our favorite heirloom tomatoes that we’re growing. And we have a delicious recipe included too! You can visit all our tomato recipes on our tomato page.

Every once in a while two cravings collide and something magical happens. Sometimes it all ends up being one big, tasteless mess and easily forgotten dish. But on occasion, these random food ideas can marry into a lovely dish that we’ll make over and over. So a few weeks ago we were craving a baked tomato dish and aside from our tomato tarts that we love making, the idea of combining a crisp and tomato popped up like a light bulb.

Introducing, the tomato crisp. It has everything that we love about summer: vine ripened heirloom tomatoes + crisp topping + baked in the oven = perfect savory crisp dish. The math says it all.

If you’re already a fan of fruit crisps (raise your hands high!) and heirloom tomatoes, then combining these two isn’t too far fetched of a culinary idea. Really, the idea of a savory tomato crisp is quite delicious. The juicy, baked tomatoes are essentially and botanically speaking, a fruit anyways. So all you’re really changing is the flavor from a sweet stonefruit or berry profile to a lovely tomato-y sweet flavor.

Consider this tomato crisp the perfect side dish to a grilled meat dish or a pairing to a nice vegetarian salad. Either way, the textures of the crisp oats and juicy tomatoes underneath add to the essential flavors and colors of Summer. It can’t be beat.

And these lovely tomatoes we’re making them with? They’re chocolate stripe heirloom tomatoes and aren’t they a beauty to behold? These chocolate stripes actually did extremely well in the garden, giving off at least 3 dozen medium to large sized fruit. The colors and striping are very striking and the sweet flavors make this at the top of our heirloom tomato list. It’s definitely going to be on the list for next year because they’re the plant that kept on giving.

Happy Summer!

Lately it seems our cooking at home has been driven by an over abundance of ingredients. Creativity from Copiousness, if you will. Not that we are complaining. Quite the opposite really, we couldn’t be happier. The garden is going blitzkrieg with its tomato production. We’ve lost the battle for the blueberries with the mockingbirds, but […]

Spring Roll Bites – “Tapas” for All

Spring Roll Bites

Perhaps it’s by birth that I’m so addicted to fresh spring rolls. I can’t negate the fact that I was bred on a diet of rice and noodle dishes, so anything with Vietnamese or Asian flavors always sounds appealing. But if I could name one Vietnamese dish that I have at least three or four […]

Let’s be honest. We all have our vices and hidden underneath or behind our pantry shelves somewhere probably lies a half eaten box of Little Debbie chocolate cupcakes. It could possibly be our box of stress-relief after a long days work or when you need to quietly sneak your kid some sugar contraband just so […]

It’s always an accident. At some point during my garden duties of tying up the tomato vines on the trellis, I inevitably bump a healthy green tomato and watch it fall to the ground. Darn it. There’s nothing more frustrating than to watch a beautiful heirloom tomato grow to it’s perfect shape and never see […]

A vegetable side dish doesn’t have to be complicated. I often remind myself of this when menu planning for a party of twelve or more. Even if I’m making dinner for two, I remind myself again and again: keep it simple, keep it fresh and it will be great. Sometimes I’ll browse through a cookbook […]
