View Full Version : What goes well with sundried tomatoes?
01-21-2002, 08:57 AM
I am doing a variation on a bread I make regularly. Usually I just throw in some cooked minced garlic into the mixture, however, this time I want to through in some sundried tomatoes. What would go well with this that I can throw in also? Whether it be onion, olives and even a spice/herb. Any ideas anyone?

Erin C. posted a recipe for a yummy sundried tomato bread. You could "borrow" some of her ingredients and put them into your bread. I have been meaning to try this for so long. Since I have today off I think I'll do it. Here is the recipe.

I'd like some recipes using sundried tomatoes myself!
On my trip to Costco today, I bought a jar of them; they are beautiful! Now I just have to decide what to do with them. Any ideas are appreciated.

I made that bread to go with dinner last night and love it. If you like spinach you will love this bread. It went alright with dinner, but I think it would be better suited with soup or salad. It just has so many flavors going on that they get muddled up with a full meal.

Black olives. There's a bakery in Stratford that makes a sundried tomato and black olive bread... no one but local regulars ever gets it, because you order it ahead of time and every single loaf always sells out.

Mmmmm, roasted garlic and/or rosemary. :D
