Last Wednesday I got in my CSA Week 9.
In the mix was:
...andHUSKED Tomatoes!!! Have you guys heard of these? They are sweet and tangy and unexpected! I had no idea what to think when the guy at our CSA insisted I try one. Wow, you guys should try these! I'm not sure if there is much you can do with them, but they make perfect little snacks.
With these treats- the highlight of my week was making Stuffed Tomatoes- two ways. (This was last week)
First a recipe inspired by Martha- Stuffed Tomatoes with Corn and Goat Cheese
Stuffed Tomatoes with Grilled Corn
EveryDay Food Martha Stewart, Tomatoes Stuffed with Grilled-Corn Salad Recipe - MarthaStewart.com
3 ears corn, with husks
4 beefsteak tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for grates
1/2 cup chopped scallions
1/2 summer squash, diced
1/2 cup crumbled soft goat cheese
Coarse salt and ground pepper
3 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
Grill or microwave corn. I microwave my corn using the fresh vegetable setting with the husk on. Peel, seed, and chop pepper; place in large bowl. Cool corn, then cut kernels off cobs; add to bowl with pepper. Cut tomatoes crosswise in half. Using melon baller or small spoon, scoop center of tomatoes into small bowl, leaving shell. Sprinkle inside of tomato shells lightly with salt; place cut side down on paper towels and let drain 30 minutes. (If you have time- I never have time for steps like this so I skipped it and I think it was still pretty good : ). Add scallions, squash, goat cheese, corn and oil together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper; toss to combine. Spoon filling into hollowed tomatoes; sprinkle with remaining goat cheese and bacon.
