Almond Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes

I have been wanting to post this tomato recipe forever! Believe it or not these photos were taken late last summer.

Then fall hit, life sped ahead and heirloom tomatoes were no longer in season. Now however they are back in full force. These tomatoes are baked not fried, but are reminiscent of really good comfort food.

Roasting the tomatoes with almond meal makes these perfect for  salad toppers ~ also great as a hearty, healthy side dish. Perfect for folks on a grain free, Paleo diet.

I love the look of these tomatoes so much I had to include them in my photography portfolio.

I savor all of their silly lumps, bumps and beautiful coloring…they are the perfect food supermodels.

But then again I guess supermodels don’t want any lumps and bumps…

They make me smile.

Almond Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes are baked not fried.

Breaded without traditional flour breading (blanched almond meal) …they are not fried green tomatoes. Though they taste as great. Without the fried part.

Be sure to top with some fresh herbs.
