Are you looking for something to do with all those cherry tomatoes? In addition to salsas, cobblers, pasta sauces, etc., how about a hot tomato sandwich? This is a vegetarian version of your typical hot beef or hot turkey sandwich and just as satisfying.
1-2 T. Olive Oil
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered (about 2 pounds)
1/2 tsp. salt
Freshly ground pepper
Basil garnish – optional
Shredded parmesan cheese – optional
Whole grain bread slices, toasted
Preheat cast iron pan on medium. Add oil and garlic and stir constantly for 1 minute. This should keep the garlic from getting too brown or burning. Add the prepared tomatoes and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve over your favorite toasted whole grain bread. Top with fresh basil and/or shredded parmesan if you wish. The open-faced sandwich is pictured here with freshly picked steamed green (plus purple and yellow) beans. Enjoy – we do!
