Summer tomato tart

If you’ve been growing your own tomatoes in the garden and you suddenly have an abundance, or you’ve picked them up from the farmers’ market when tomatoes are at their peak, this is the recipe for you! This is a favourite recipe and makes a meal when served with a mixed green salad and an Italian inspired olive oil-vinegar dressing.


Caramelised Onion Sauce

Onions are a great prebiotic source and when they’ve been gently heated for quite a while, like in this recipe, they are very easy to digest. I use this sauce in stead of tomato sauce on pizza among other things. It’s a great alternative for those who can’t tolerate tomatoes and lectins. But it’s just as great with meats, cheese, sausages, or even just a piece of crispy bread with goat cheese.
