Sun-dried tomato paste

Did you know that the tomato originated in South America and is actually a berry, even though we are used to calling it a vegetable? This deliciously juicy fruit is the perfect accompaniment to a breakfast sandwich, in a lunch soup or tucked into a salad. In addition to its great taste, the tomato is also hugely versatile and nutrient-rich, providing us with essential nutrients such as lycopene, beta-carotene and vitamins E and C. Allowing the tomatoes to dry in the sun and then topping them with a handful of fresh herbs will result in nothing but a delicious tomato puree that will take your usual sandwich or salad to a whole new level!
