Sun-dried tomatoes brighten wintry days

In summer, we take for granted our unlimited access to juicy, delicious, mouth-watering ripe homegrown tomatoes.

But it isn’t summer anymore, and winter tomatoes tend to be tasteless.

If you still crave that rich tomato flavor, have you thought of using sun-dried tomatoes in recipes?

You don’t have to dehydrate them yourself if you don’t want to. They are available in most grocery stores and offer a versatility in dishes that may surprise you.

I hope you’ll try and enjoy these four recipes.
