Tomatoes, Soup and Cake

23 Oct

Over the last couple of weeks at Community Roots, the tomato tunnels have been cleared and last week we brought home lots of green tomatoes. I put them with a ripe banana in the hope that they might ripen. ( Ripe bananas give off a gas called ethylene which helps other fruit to ripen.) It worked!

So, today I made tomato soup!

And then I made a Plum, Almond and Chocolate Cake for tomorrow’s coffee break at Community Roots. I’ve adapted the recipe to make it gluten free so that everyone can have a piece.

      It does! It went down very well with all the hard working volunteers. 🙂

    That cake looks amazing. Tomato soup is my favorite.

      It is rather delicious and the home-made tomato soup the best I’ve ever had – never made it before, only had it out of a can! Today we had the rest of it with a dollop of pesto and that made it even better. 🙂
