This rich creamy Roasted Tomato Basil Dip will be the hit of the party. It is easy to make with only 5 ingredients.
I was craving creamy tomato soup today, but ended up with this delicious Roasted Tomato Basil Dip instead. Before I got to the broth part of the recipe I was creating, I decided it was too good to mess with. The soup will just have to wait for another day.
This goes well with my Pizza Crackers, shown here. They taste just like I named them – pizza! I made them both within the last 24 hours. I had a huge amount of plum tomatoes to use from visiting Market on the Move on Tuesday. If you don’t know what Market on the Move is, it is a program in Arizona that rescues approximately 30 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables, distributes over $45,000,000 worth of produce, provides over 23 million meals, helps more than 460,000 families in need, and distributes fresh produce to more than 300 food banks and agencies across Arizona and throughout the United States. You make a $10 donation, and get up to 60lbs. of fresh produce. So, expect more recipes with plum tomatoes, as well as recipes with peppers, spicy peppers, cucumbers, and yellow squash.
This Roasted Tomato Basil Dip would be a hit at any party or potluck.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
