Delicious tomato recipes

It’s tomato season in Britain – there’s no better time of year to incorporate this delicious vegetable (though technically a fruit!) into your diet. 

Whether you grow your own in the back garden, pick them up fresh from your local farmer’s market, or sample new varieties available at the supermarket, we’ve picked out our favourite tomato recipes to enjoy this summer.

Bruschetta pasta

This fast and easy pasta dish is from our one-pot pasta feature. Everything is cooked together in just one dish and can be ready in around 10 minutes – try it with cherry tomatoes for the most vibrant flavour.

Tomato and avocado salad with a lime & chilli dressing

This quick and easy vegan salad combines loads of delicious flavours. Use a variety of tomatoes in different colours, shapes and sizes for a dazzling finish.

Leafy Panzanella

Fast, simple, healthy and delicious, this leafy Panzanella is the perfect dish for the height of summer! Traditionally Panzanella has no leaves, but this twist on a classic adds the bite of crunchy Romaine, helping it to go even further and fill you up as a lunch or light supper.

Crispy chicken legs with mixed cherry tomatoes, leeks and potatoes 

This recipe for crispy chicken legs with mixed vegetables is the perfect dish for summer and is full of fresh flavours.  So quick and easy to prepare and cook, using just one dish saves on the washing-up too – what’s not to like?
