Is it too early too talk about tomatoes?
They’re already so good and abundant in the markets. I still had quite a few left over from the kilo I bought in the shuk a few days before. I was thinking of a dip or spread for basil bread that I was going to take to a little get-together later on. Like, a tomato pesto.
And there were all these sweet, plum cherry tomatoes on my counter. It was easy to imagine roasting, then blending them. Adding almonds to thicken the puree. Herbs, too, and naturally, olive oil. Yes.
