21 Healthy Cold-Weather Tomato Recipes


Fresh, juicy, and delicious local tomatoes are a rarity but that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to enjoy delicious tomato flavor, along with the beneficial antioxidants and micronutrients that tomatoes provide, all year long.  

Because tomatoes are quickly canned after harvest, they retain their flavor and freshness.  

It’s just one of the reasons canned tomatoes and other lightly processed tomato products are actually the preferred tomato ingredient for many chefs, registered dietitians, and healthy food bloggers.  

Need some ideas?  Here are 21 ways to warm up with cozy, cold-weather tomato recipes that prove hearty and delicious comfort food can also be packed with nutrition.
