Baked Garden Tomatoes with Cheese
Yield: 6 Servings

INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, chopped
 1 medium onion, chopped
1 3/4 pounds fresh vine-ripened or heirloom tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 cup (packed) freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup (packed) freshly grated Romano cheese
Two more ways to go: Add chopped fresh basil leaves and/or small cubes of mozzarella cheese. Or use yellow and green tomatoes with the red ones to add summer color.
PREPARATION
Preheat oven to 350°F. Oil 11×7-inch baking dish. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add onion and sauté until soft, about 6 minutes. Add tomatoes, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. 

Mix in chives; season with salt and pepper. Transfer tomato mixture to prepared baking dish; sprinkle grated cheeses over. Bake until cheese melts and begins to turn golden, about 20 minutes.

 

This recipe is a little teaser, we will have tomatoes in two weeks.
One of Summer’s greatest treats, TOMATOES!

Happy Week 11 of the Summer CSA!

This week marks the halfway point of the 2019 Summer CSA season. Things are heating up! We never refrigerate tomatoes or basil, so if you pick your share up at the farm, look for a note on the checklist clipboard about where you can find them.

If you pick your share up anywhere else, we will tuck your tomatoes & basil into your box just before delivery.

If this is your first time using New Zealand spinach, it is a heat tolerant plant which (unlike regular spinach) thrives in the summer! As you may have guessed, it is native to New Zealand and loaded with Vitamin C. We tend to prefer it cooked, as the texture is slightly different than regular spinach. It also works beautifully in smoothies. Yum!

Enjoy the food! We hope you all have a healthy and happy 4th!
