Kids Cooking Recipe: Fresh Tomatoes with Herbs and Olive Oil

Posted by the Mom (aka Kelly Biedny)


Tomatoes are in abundance this time of year. One of our favorite ways to eat them is pretty basic, just a few herbs, a little olive oil and a splash of white wine vinegar. Here’s the official recipe, we hope you like it as much as Soph and I do (Alex isn’t much for tomatoes :( ).

Happy Family Cooking Everyone!

Kids Cooking Recipe: Fresh Tomatoes with Herbs and Olive Oil

Kids Cooking Recipe: Fresh Tomatoes with Herbs and Olive Oil

Ingredients

  • 3 Fresh, garden tomato
  • 4 tsp fresh Thyme, chopped
  • 1 tsp Rosemary, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Basil, chopped
  • 1 tsp White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon EVOO
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • First, slice up your tomatoes. Because a sharp knife is required for a good cut, older kids can do this with a sharper knife. Serated knives are good for cutting tomatoes as well. The seration breaks through the tomato skin without squishing the tomato. Sharp, chef knives are good too, but I always use a bread knife.
  • Next, chop up your herbs. Again, it's best for an older child to use a chef's knife to chop up each of the herbs. Now, if you don't have fresh herbs, those dried herb grinder's you can find in grocery stores are great, too--and a younger child can easily grind these herbs over the tomatoes.
  • Mix the White Wine Vinegar and Extra Virgin Olive Oil together with a whisk in a small bowl. Kids of any age can help with measuring and mixing these ingredients.
  • Drizzle the Olive Oil and Vinegar mixture over the tomatoes...again, any age child can help with this.
  • Finally, sprinkle the chopped herbs and salt to taste. And, yes, younger kids and up can help with this part, too.
