RECIPES: Oven Dried Tomatoes, Dried Tomatoe Vanaigrette, Dried Tomato Appetizer, Eggplant and Dried Tomato Pizza

By Rae Udy

Its great to get a taste of summer during the cold months of the year and dried tomatoes add flavor and nutrition to many winter meals.
Dried tomatoes take on a completely different texture and flavor from their ripe counterparts. They become rich tasting, intensely tomato flavored, and raisin-like in texture.
Dried tomatoes are very high in dietary fiber with three grams per serving, and provide 16 percent of daily value needed for iron. One serving of five dried tomato pieces contains only 40 calories, no fat and two grams of protein. www.calorie-count.com/calories/item/95448.html
There are many ways to use dried tomatoes. Use kitchen shears to snip them into pieces and drop into soups, stews and casseroles. Re-hydrate tomatoes by covering with warm water and allow them to set at room temperature for 30 minutes. Drain and add to a tossed salad. Save the liquid for soup or add to cooked vegetables.
Add dried tomato pieces to cooked vegetables during the last five minutes of cooking. Try adding them to green beans, cabbage or green peas.
Need a bold new taste to perk up a winter salad? Bursting with the flavor of your own Oven Dried Tomatoes, Dried Tomato Vinaigrette brings life to any salad. This dressing is best on full-flavor greens and lettuces such as endive, arugula and radicchio.
