Fried tomato sauce (tomate frito in Spanish) is a pureed tomato sauce with a hint of onion and garlic, that can be used as a base ingredient or enjoyed simply for its own flavour. It is distinct from most tomato sauces because the tomatoes have been fried, and its ingredients include a small amount of vegetable oil. It is the most common tomato ingredient of Spanish cuisine other than fresh tomatoes, and is sold under many brand names. When made by first low frying garlic and onion pieces in oil with spices and then adding the tomato puree, fried tomato sauce is known as sofrito. Heinz Tomato Frito was popularised in the United Kingdom as a short-cut ingredient by the cook Delia Smith, extolling it in books and her website recipes.

It seems that just about every Italian American restaurant has some rendition of a mussels dish: alla Posillipo (spicy tomato sauce), alla marinara (mild fresh tomato sauce), and so on. Well, here is a spicy one: mussels in spicy tomato sauce. Mussels are not an expensive seafood and deliver a lot of flavor if fresh and still briny from the sea.

Guys, we should definitely, definitely talk about these. I realize that you might imagine rice stuffed tomatoes to be something unappealing. Maybe you had a cold, stomach-turning one at a buffet wedding too many years ago that its squidgy horror should still be fresh in your mind, and yet. Maybe you cannot imagine why anyone would consider rice stuffed inside a tomato to be something noteworthy, being just rice and tomatoes, possibly two of the most generic foods out there. And maybe you’re going to be disappointed when I tell you that I added nothing, just about nothing at all, and that’s the best thing about them. I loved rice stuffed tomatoes because they feel to me like the essence of simple Italian and Mediterranean cooking, this idea that you don’t need to lay 16 outside flavors onto things as simple as seasonal tomatoes and plain rice to make them taste amazing. So if you are curious to know more about this summery recipe, here you go. I hope you’ll like it! Oh, and feel free to stuff them with some beef maybe, or to make them a little spicy by using some chili.

Tomato and basil bruschetta is therefore one of the most simple but most amazing appetizers or snacks you can possibly prepare, and it’s healthy too since it contains garlic and tomatoes, with almost no fat at all. Take some time to personally chop your plum tomatoes and basil, instead of using a food processor. The result will be way better and enjoyed with some friends and a good bottle of white wine, this tomato and basil bruschetta will blow your mind.
