Indigo Rose

Nothing but tomatoes on the brain these days! Thought it was time to spruce the ol’ blog up with one of my favorite foods. Long live tomato season!!

My housewarming gift to E way back in June was a wee little Indigo Rose tomato start. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s a hybrid plant that originated at Oregon State University and is the color of eggplant and full of antioxidants. Even though we were late potting it, the combo of his green thumb and our lingering warm summer days means we’ve actually been able to pick and eat a few! Fingers crossed we’ll have more of this beautiful bounty in our upcoming harvest meals.

Last night we chopped them into couscous and added other garden herbs, balsamic, onion, garlic, chopped broccoli and olives.
