while blanching green + white beans… I wondered… what would happen if I boiled a cherry tomato. Plop, one cherry tomato was dropped in for 2 minutes and became my culinary experiment of the meal. Results were DELICIOUS!!!! The tomato melted in my mouth – the way it does when you are at a fine Italian restaurant. The important thing to try to remember is to maintain the tomato skins integrity by minimizing boiling time.
after green beans boiled for 6 minutes and tomatos for 2… remove and place in chilled water… cold from tap is fine.
Combine 1 can chic peas, salmon, onion, olive oil, salt, garlic (lots) in a skillet, sautee and mix with veggies! so easy and reasonably healthy!
