I haven’t blogged about my eats in a loooooong time. I really wanna get this blog back on track with discussing food and sharing recipes, so without further ado, I present to you…my lunch. Thrilling, I know.
But I was certainly thrilled to come across a big glorious pile of heirloom tomatoes at Whole Foods yesterday, all piled up like jewels in a treasure chest. The colors, patterns, and irregular shapes are a feast for the eyes. I especially love the ones with lots of ridges and pleats, like a shiny swatch of silk tucked and pinned around a soft globe.
I sliced up one of the purple-tinted ones over a tartine of smashed avocado sprinkled with dulse flakes. I like to say tartine because it sounds fancier than open-faced sandwich.
I salted the tops and cracked over some black pepper and served them with a donut peach and kombucha. I know it looks small, but I tend to eat lunch in two phases. I’ll probably have some goat’s milk yogurt with peanut butter protein granola later.
OMG these tomatoes are so good! And this is coming from someone who typically does not enjoy raw tomatoes. But these are so sweet and juicy that I’m reminded that tomatoes are actually a fruit. And they’re not mealy or watery like so many tomatoes are. Totally worth the Whole Foods price tag.
Have you ever had an heirloom tomato?
Are there and veggies you can only eat cooked/don’t enjoy raw?
