As a Korean-American foodie who resides in West Oakland, I’m lucky that there’s a slew of fine eateries not too far from our home all along Telegraph Avenue in Temescal.
Tag: roasted tomatoes
Dressed in caramel notes, with a suggestion of salt and a big wink toward vinegar, a roasted tomato’s most memorable feature is its long, sensuous, deep and savory finish.
For the longest time, I never really knew what to think of cherry tomatoes. Or what to do with them. Though I might have regarded them as more interesting and Barbie-sized than the usual, boring (and most often flavorless) Beefsteak tomatoes I’d normally encountered, I left them where I felt they rightly belonged– at the Sizzler salad bar, carelessly splashed by a variety of commercial salad dressings.
So what do you do with 20 lbs of tomatoes and a can-not attitude? What do you do when you have no desire to stand over a boiling pot of tomatoes in 90 degree heat? You roast and freeze. That’s right. I let my oven do most of the work and then after that, I’m letting my freezer do the rest.
