Recently Pomi tomatoes contacted me to try their tomatoes and post recipes using their product for my readers. I like Pomi and buy them quite often. Pomi is an all natural brand of boxed tomatoes from Italy. I love the simplicity of the product as well as it’s pure ingredients. Pomi’s tomatoes are grown naturally in Italy and they abide by the European standards for farming. More importantly, Pomi’s ingredients contain nothing more than pure tomatoes. No added salt, water, citric acid or preservatives. The only ingredient on the label is tomatoes! Pomi is 100% all natural and because it is packaged in a box, it is BPA-free.
All that said, pomi tomatoes taste so fresh and don’t have the lingering after taste of metal as in other canned tomatoes. This makes them perfect to be used in recipes that usually call for fresh tomatoes.
Rasam, is a South Indian version of tomato soup and is usually made with fresh tomatoes. I used Pomi chopped tomatoes to make this tangy, spicy and comforting rasam. This is my mom’s version with no dal and it is great to sip by itself or with some steamed rice and curry.
