"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food" - Hippocrates

I decided to grow tomato plants in a container garden. I chose Roma and cherry tomatoes. Last year, I couldn't get any to grow, but this year I have had a plentiful crop. This weekend I made several recipes including:

Roasted Tomato Salsa- this is super easy to make

2 jalapeno peppers
3 cups chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup onion, diced
1/4 cup cilantro
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt

Chop tomatoes, jalapenos and onion. Place in a pan and roast in the oven at 300 for 20 minutes. Cool. Mix lime juice, olive oil, cilantro, and salt in a bowl. Add in vegetables. Enjoy with homemade tortilla chips. Cut corn tortillas into six wedges. Sprinkle with salt and cumin. Bake in the oven at 400 for 15 minutes. Enjoy!

Roasted Vegetables- this recipe has so many uses. I use the vegetables to make a pizza on a FlatOut Wrap. Or it would be delicious with pasta or in lasagna. You can add other veggies including eggplant, mushrooms, etc.

1 zuchini squash
1 summer squash
5 small Roma tomatoes
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 onion
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp basil
1 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

Chop vegetables. Place in a bowl and add olive oil and spices. Roast in the oven at 300 for 30-35 minutes.
