Fresh Tomato Bread
This bread is a great combination for fun in the summer sun. It is fresh tomato bread made with, well, fresh tomatoes, among other yummy ingredients. It is also a quick bread, and not yeast bread, so it is made up quickly from scratch. For any one who has had a bumper tomato crop and just does not know how much more tomato sauce the family can stand, this recipe offers an unusual combination that just might renew everyone’s love of the delicious fruit.
Tomatoes are considered one of the healthiest fruits (yes, tomatoes are actually a fruit) that you could possibly eat. There are literally hundreds of tomato varieties as any tomato grower or lover can tell you. And they are not just red. You can find deep purple or purple brown tomatoes, yellow, orange, and green ones. All of them provide an excellent source of antioxidants, one of the best. In addition, tomatoes contain loads of vitamins including vitamin C, A, E, B1, B3, B6 and many others. Tomatoes are also loaded with minerals such as iron and zinc and even contain small amounts of protein. So eat your tomatoes. If you can grow your own tomatoes at home, you will be utterly astonished at how good they taste. Eat them right off the vine, especially in the middle of the morning after the sun has warmed them up and their sugars are at their height.
A quick bread is a great way to start learning about breads, too. This recipe combines tomatoes and cheese in an interesting combination of ingredients that will produce a sweet and savory blend of tastes set off by the tang of buttermilk. Buttermilk originally was the left over liquid from churning butter. Today it is made using commercial methods, but it is still a lovely ingredient to cook with. This could be a good recipe for an advancing baker who wants to try using some new ingredients and producing something that is a bit different for dinner tonight. Want not try it out?
