Sauteed Green Tomatoes - Monday 8/25/2008

I wanted to try to do something with those green tomatoes from Sanchez Produce, but I didn't really want to do the fried thing.

I thought the sweetness of the onion and the mild butteryness of crook-neck squash would balance well with the somewhat tangy green tomato.

-Olive oil
-1 large onion (cook till translucent and a bit browned before adding other stuff)
-2 large crookneck squash
-4 small green tomatoes
-1 small red tomato
-fresh rosemary
-celery seed
-freshly ground pepper and salt

I cut the onion into about 1 inch square pieces. Wanted them to be more like a vegetable than a seasoning. I was only going to use rosemary and celery seed, but then as I stood over the pan and inhaled, I thought it was really asking for some sage.

The red tomato pretty much disintegrated, but helped carry the flavors.

After cooking the onions for about 10 minutes I added the other veggies for another 15 minutes or so, until they started looking cooked.

We liked this. I’m looking forward to having the leftovers with some grilled chicken strips for lunch tomorrow.

Thanks. It was a nice blend. I think I'd like to try doing a savory green tomato tart with the tomatoes verrry thinly sliced and layered. I need some free weekends to try some new ideas!

This was lovely and tasty!...I substituted zucchini (because it's in my garden), added garlic to the olive oil, and left out the red tomato (because I only have green ones coming in right now). Also grated a little carrot in it for some color. The fresh sage and rosemary along with the celery seed are so perfect with the green tomatoes. Very ymmy.

I love that you customized and told me about it. Garlic is always a good call, and I will try the grated carrots, too.

So buying designer Christian Louboutin shoes would not be a bad apportion as the food ensure that while manufacturing them, all authenticity minutiae have been rightly hackneyed, making Christian Louboutin Pumps a must buy for all the funds conscious people. When you would supply Christian Louboutin Boots , no one would be able to make out that Christian Louboutin Sandals are not the originals and you would automatically become the design icon of the gathering.

Thanks for the post! I was looking for ideas for my underripe tomatoes and was able to adapt your recipe to what I have on hand (added garlic and thyme, didn't have squash or celery seed). It tasted great and my boyfriend who doesn't like tomatoes even gave it a thumbs up. :)

Glad you liked it Sarah. It's very adaptable!
