As promised, here is a recipe I prepared with the most delicious Marinated Sun-dried Tomatoes I have ever tasted. I adapted it from a vinaigrette recipe that I found in Once Upon a Tart by Frank Mentesana and Jerome Audureau. If I ever get a chance to visit New York, I will for sure seek out their cafe. In the meantime, I can enjoy their informative and colourful book filled with lots of ideas for tarts, soups, sandwiches, salads, condiments, quickbreads and cookies. So many helpful hints and amusing musings are included in this volume! Yet another treasured cookbook to add to the growing stack.
My version of their vinaigrette uses a lot more sun-dried tomatoes than the original recipe called for and actually resembled a sauce, rather than a vinaigrette, but turned out to be a wonderful accompaniment to a bean and vegetable salad that I will be sharing soon. My take on the recipe would also be a delightful pasta sauce combined with some fresh herbs and nuts. Sun-Dried Tomato Dressing
1/2 cup of marinated sun-dried tomatoes
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
freshly cracked black pepper to taste
1/2 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup of olive oil
In a food processor, combine the sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, balsamic vinegar, salt, black pepper and Parmesan cheese. Puree until well combined. Drizzle in the olive oil while the machine continues to blend.Other sauces and dressings from Lisa's Vegetarian Kitchen you may enjoy:
