Roasted Tomatoes – Marinated and Roasted Cherry Tomatoes Recipe

Roasted Tomatoes Main Pic2

Marinated and Roasted Cherry Tomatoes can be spendy, about a dollar per oz, that’s why I’m showing you how to make them yourself for 1/3 the cost. These are excellent in salads, sandwiches and in pasta. So if you’re interested in saving some money and treating yourself to one of life’s delicacies, try this recipe. I use them in my Waffle Iron Grilled cheese video recipe which I’ve listed below. Also, if you’re interested in roasted peppers, check out my stuffed peppers video recipe listed below as well.

Stromboli Recipe – How to make Stromboli Supreme

Stromboli Supreme main pic

My Stromboli is Huge!

I’m using enough pizza dough for one 14″ Pizza to make this Stromboli. It’s approximately 2 ft long so it makes it real easy to cut off a slice, just like you would a sub sandwich, to serve to family and friends.  Make yours however you want but I highly recommend making it this way.  The Stromboli is both fun to make and equally impressive when it’s served.

Stromboli

This Stromboli recipe follows the idea of a Supreme Pizza with fresh veggies and Italian meats but you can put whatever you want in it.  And that’s the best part.  I love vegetarian Stromboli’s because they have so much flavor.  Broccoli and Cheese Stromboli… Spinach, Onion and Mushroom Stromboli (Chicken)… Are you starting to see where I’m going with this?  The possibilities are endless!

You may need a good Marinara or Pizza Sauce for dipping so I’ll include a link for that down below.  You will also find a link for pizza dough in the ingredients if you need a recipe for that too.  Both recipes are restaurant quality and worthy of hanging on to or even sharing with friends and family.  Just be sure to tell them where you got it!

Vegetable Chili with 4 Beans

Vegetable Chili

100% Vegetarian Vegetable Chili

This Vegetable Chili, for me, is really exciting.  Because this time of year I get to start, slowly but surely, harvesting what I’ve been growing in my garden all summer long.  In this video I was able to use my Zucchini and Yellow Squash.  Everything else unfortunately isn’t ready to be picked yet but I was able to pick up those ingredients at the store.

4 Bean Vegetable Chili

I’m using 4 different kinds of beans in this Vegetable Chili recipe; Pinto, Black, Red and Garbanzo Beans but you can use whatever you like.  The basic idea behind this recipe starts with the Cajun Holy Trinity; Onions, Celery, Bell Peppers and chopped Garlic.  Then I like to work my way up the pot with the larger vegetables, Tomato Sauce and then the seasonings before I add the beans.  But once all 4 cans of those are in, I add the broth and simmer for 10 minutes with the lid.  In no time you will have the absolute best Vegetarian Chili you have ever had.  In fact the only thing that would make this Vegetable Chili recipe better is Chicken!

Vegetable Chili Ingredients:

1 can Pinto Beans
1 can Black Beans
1 can Red Beans
1 can Garbanzo Beans
1 can Tomato Sauce
3 Cups Vegetable Broth

1 Onion, chopped
1 Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Celery Stick, chopped
1 Garlic Clove, chopped
2 Roma Tomatoes, Chopped
