Test Kitchen: Heirloom Tomatoes


On Saturdays, we try out a recipe from a fellow food blogger from around the country. Check out Travel, Wine, and Dine!

I would classify this week’s Test Kitchen as more of an inspiration than a recipe. The pictures and words from this post inspired me to head out to my local market and grab some of the best heirloom tomatoes I could find. And I did.

TWD let the heirloom tomatoes do the talking–suggesting to add just some salt, pepper, olive oil, and goat cheese. Simple and appropriate. I also added a little fresh basil because I had some. As a heterosexual male, I’m a little embarrassed to type this…but…the flavors really burst in my mouth.  I am slowly becoming a fan of goat cheese.  Even if you are adverse to this cheese, I still highly recommend trying it with the heirlooms, but in very small crumbles.  A little goes a long way!

Sometimes the best recipes are the simple ones. Easy cooking can be quite inspirational!

    Ha! I have to be in the right mood for goat cheese myself. And usually that mood improves if the goat cheese is fried. 😉
