As the spring sets in it bring forth the perfectness of vine-ripened tomatoes. The farmer’s markets are full of them. There are beautiful Roma, Heirlooms, Cherry tomatoes of different colours, Solano and many many more bright and cheery varieties to go on with. The short life of the tomatoes calls in for this lovely produce to be tackled quickly. When I spot my batch of these beauties, I spend that week dedicated to creating some traditional tomato thokku and another big batch of roasted tomatoes.
Roasted tomatoes are such a lovely burst of flavour to anything that you want to add to it. The oven-roasted tomatoes that I regularly do with garlic and basil are such a handy ingredient. Very often I freeze a batch of them so I can have a quick fix for any meal.
Here is how I do my set of Over roasted Tomatoes
The addition of garlic and basil while roasting creates an aromatic effect and they infuse these flavours perfectly. Hence when we throw them in a bit of pasta or blend them as a dip it hardly needs any more dress up. This is what makes this tomato dip unique as well.
This post goes towards the #dipformychip collection at Healthy Wellthy group. This series was proposed by me keeping in mind the numerous entertaining series we do start from this time of the year. Of course, there is no party without a chip and its dip.
Today I have decided to go a bit on the spicy route. Since oven-roasted tomatoes are ready to go… Some flame tossed jalapenos are the best buddy here. Together with the tomatoes they are such an addictive combination. Guess what!! whichever is the chip you choose is tortilla, rice crackers, good-old potato or even bits of pita bread, this roasted tomato dip recipe satisfies them all. So share around a good platter and celebrate spring.
Here are a few more dips my fellow bloggers have come up with, try them too. A couple of dips, a bowl of chips and good company is just perfect destress. So don’t miss to check out these beautiful creations and have a fun-tastic time.
