Savory Tomato Galette

Savory Tomato Galette

I don’t usually like to bake or roast fresh garden tomatoes, but I had an intense craving for a savory cheesy tomato galette, so I bought a few pounds of fresh tomatoes, sliced them up, seasoned them with salt and layered them on the most buttery and flakey pastry dough. I added a thin layer of goat cheese under the sliced tomatoes, and them added additional Parmesan cheese in the crust.

This recipe is so simple. Pasta, oil, garlic, tomatoes, cheese, and seasoning. It tastes similar to a mac and cheese, just a little more sophisticated. The recipe takes a little under 20 minutes to prepare, so it has been a go-to favorite of ours for the last little while.

Sebastian is especially into these savory corn and cheddar waffles. They are fun and kid-friendly, but I also really like eating them myself, so it's a win-win for all of us. I usually make a large batch and then store them in the fridge and reheat over the course of a few days.

Cherry Tomato and Halloumi Salad with Fresh Herbs

After my enthusiastic purchase of many tomatoes,  I decided to snack on the first pint while standing at my new kitchen island with some sliced aged cheddar and a 1/2 empty bottle of rose. Alright fine, there were chips as well. I used the second pint of cherry tomatoes in this delicious seared halloumi salad with fresh herbs.

Simple Caprese Salad + the EDYN garden monitor and how it changed my life

As a little tribute to the EDYN garden sensor, I am sharing my favorite summatime salad, which is basically my favorite way to eat fresh tomatoes. A simple Caprese salad. The key to making a good Caprese is good quality ingredients. Fresh sweet tomatoes, fresh basil, a soft fresh mozzarella, good olive oil, and Maldon salt.
