Whole Food Wednesdays: Oven Roasted Tomato Salad with Spiced Croutons

Welcome to Whole Food Wednesdays! You’re invited to come and share your real food recipes using the Linky below. We’re excited to see what yummy things you’ve been creating and what great informational posts and videos you’ve got for us.

Oven Roasted Tomato Salad with Spiced Croutons

  • 8 medium to small tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 pieces bread
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta
  • 1 large handful cilantro, chopped
  • olive oil to drizzle

Preheat oven to 325 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Quarter the tomatoes and toss with the olive oil. Lay out the tomatoes on a baking sheet in a single layer and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour or until they start to dry out a bit.

Mix the olive oil, paprika, cumin and salt in a small bowl. Brush both sides of bread with the spiced oil and cut into cubes. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until golden.

In a large bowl, mix the tomatoes, croutons, cilantro and feta together. Drizzle with olive oil and serve immediately.

The tomatoes and croutons can be made ahead of time. Store the tomatoes in the fridge and the croutons in an airtight container.

Whole Food Wednesday’s Round-Up Rules

To come and play, use the linky tool below to add your link. Add up to 3 links and tell us what you’ve been up to all week. Only link to the specific post and not your home page or else we won’t be able to find all that juicy information you’ve left us with. Make sure to link back to this post from your post.

The Rules:

  • 1. Follow Beyond The Peel on Facebook or Twitter.  It’s very easy to do and there are also buttons at the bottom of this page to do so.
  • 2. Introduce yourself, your blog, and what you’re about in the comment section and a small blurb about what you’re sharing. This way people can get to know you a little bit right off the hop and hopefully follow you as well.
  • 3. Be sure to add a link in your post back to this post. Simple linky etiquette. This allows your readers to find other posts that may help them on their journey.
  • 4. If you’re sharing recipes, the only requirement is that the ingredient list be comprised of real food only, that means non-processed food items. That being said, we are all in different places on our real food journey, some more advanced than others. I invite all of you to share, no matter where you are on your journey, but I ask you to stay mindful when sharing your recipes that this is a whole (real) food blog. This means, no ingredient lists that include edible oil products (velveeta, frozen whip topping), unfermented tofu, protein powders, ketchup, white flour or white and brown sugar.
  • 5. Less of a rule but more a suggestion: Retweet or stumble this post so EVERYONE gets more exposure and traffic. It’s win-win for everyone.
  • 6. Don’t have a blog? That’s ok, we’d still love to hear from you. Write your recipes or tips in the comment section so we can get to know you too!
  • 7. Please visit some of the links below. After all, that’s how we’ll get to know each other!

 

Now it’s your turn to share your whole food recipes and ideas!

    Happy Wednesday France,

    This week I am sharing two recipes: (1) a very sweet, decadent, vegan, cane-sugar free treat that will seriously knock your socks off! Coffee flavored, maple sweetened coconut whipped cream (or mousse). Everyone that has tried this claims it tastes like a mousse or pudding, but it can also be used as a whipped cream or icing for cake/cupcakes, and (2) a super easy, basic marinara sauce (creating no kitchen waste).

    Have a great week.

    Be Well,
    –Amber
