Chickpeas with Tomatoes and Ginger, is a quick and easy dish to make with cooked chick peas with Moroccan combination of ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, cumin, black pepper and fresh cilantro. Vegan, gluten-free, and best of all, delicious! Sweet Putanesca Sauce is a summer feast of tomatoes, olives, onions, capers and fresh parsley. Easy to make and everyone will love this gluten-free, sugar-free, vegan tomato sauce. Serve over your favorite pasta.
Sun-dried tomatoes, olives, fresh basil and oregano; a mixture of summer squash and kale create Mediterranean Bird’s Nest with Marinated Dried Tomatoes, Olives and Cheese , a beautiful, easy to prepare, gourmet, vegetarian, gluten-free meal.
You can make your own Marinated Dried Tomatoes with Fresh Herbs: marjoram, basil, thyme and garlic. YUM! Eat them from the jar or put them on salad, pasta, pizza; thicken tomato sauces and add color and fragrant flavors to vegetable sautés.
A great appetizer from my summer catering menu is platters of sliced garden fresh organic tomatoes, topped with fresh mozzarella decorated with fresh basil and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil .
