Canned Tomatoes: Recipes

When I did a giveaway last week of this kit of canned tomatoes from Muir Glen, I asked readers to submit tips and recipes in the Comments section in order to be eligible. I'd like to share some of those great ideas here. Anywhere in the U.S.A., we've got at least a few months to wait for fresh ripe tomatoes, so this canned organic variety is a great alternative in the meantime.

Catherine at The Vegan Good Life says she loves Rachael Ray's tomato and spinach soup.

Angela from Delightful Doings likes to mix Muir Glen tomatoes with a little garlic, dill and feta and serve them over pasta. It's a fast and easy dinner.

Kristen at The Frugal Girl uses canned tomatoes to make a pink sauce, which is a creamy tomato sauce. That's a favorite of mine as well, and one that goes well with added peas and sauteed mushrooms.

And a few of you asked about this fire roasted tomato soup from the recipe book in the kit. My husband and I both loved it. It's super simple, and super delicious.

Melonie: I'd love to post your recipe for Bison Tomato Sauce, but I couldn't find it on your blog! Please leave it in a Comment if you're reading this.

Thanks again for all your ideas! Readers, feel free to chime in with your favorite recipes for canned tomatoes in the Comments section. In my opinion, in the winter, canned Muir Glen tomatoes are better than fresh, non-local supermarket tomatoes any day.

I so love the frugality of cooking at home, as well as the abundance of recipes on the web. I can't believe I used to spend $30 per cookbook!

As far as that Muir Glen soup: you had me at "fire roasted." Yum.

Hi, I'm doing my own canning salsa recipes and I think this and canned tomatoes are good gift ideas this Christmas. Happy Holidays!
