Tomato Garlic Confit

Tomato Garlic Confit with some fresh basil on top is a super easy and uber delicious appetizer. It will take less than 5 minutes to prep and 40 minutes in the oven. You can toss Tomato Garlic Confit with pasta, top it on risotto, rice or enjoy with grilled meat and fish. We finished it with some crusty sourdough bread, pretty much wiped the plate clean with the last slice of the bread.

I was just lucky to have lived with this amazing roommate who not…

Tomato Tart with Basil and Paneer

Some weekend starts on a very lazy note with a cup of hot ginger tea at ten in the morning followed by zero plans to implement.
