Spicy Roasted Green Tomato Spread (Vegan, Gluten Free)

Happy Monday All! (Although, by the time you read this it will most likely no longer be Monday...). I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. Mine was very relaxing and ended with Sam and I going to Waterloo to check out a free acoustic set that The Head and the Heart was playing. It was super chill and they're really talented and fun to listen to. What was really exciting is that we finally found a copy of the movie Once there which we have been looking for for probably over a year now. I know, I know we could have looked online, but that felt like cheating somehow.

But about this spread. It's delicious. And spicy. And the perfect sidekick to your favorite sandwich. Or use as salsa on your burrito. We used it on sandwiches paired with a black bean spread that Sam made; very tasty.  Really the possibilities are endless and it's past my bedtime so I'm going to leave it at that and let you creative minds use this spread as you see fit.

Spicy Roasted Green Tomato Spread
  • Approximately 2 Cups of Green Grape Tomatoes, Sliced
  • 1-2 Spicy Peppers of your choice, Diced
  • 1 Clove Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt and Black Pepper to Taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prep your veggies and place in a pan lined with aluminum foil. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for approximately 20 minutes or until tomatoes start to look shriveled and golden. Transfer veggies to a food processor and pulse until you've reached the desired consistency. Then spread it on whatever you like however you like. And as always enjoy!

What's your favorite condiment?
Who is your favorite band to see live?


  1. Favorite condiment? Prolly honey. I don't put it on much, but man oh man do I enjoy it when I do! (But only the real fake corn syrup honey for this growing boy!)

    Favorite band to see live? Five Iron Frenzy. RIP. ):

    1. Wow. Five Iron Frenzy. That a band I haven't thought about in a long time!

    2. AHHHHHH! JOY! FOOD PROCESSOR AGAIN! Why do you do this to me? Are you teasing me on purpose?!! :(
      Fav band to see live? Matt and Kim. Amazzzzzing.
      xx Let's talk soon! And are you reading my book? Text me!

    3. Haha maybe you should ask for a food processor for Christmas 'cause I've got a lot more recipes on the way that involve one (raw brownies and truffles anyone?) I bet Matt and Kim would be a really fun show! And yes! I am reading your book. I haven't have as much time to read it lately. I got about halfway through it and then got super busy. Hopefully next week I can just start it over and read it all in one go so I can get the full feel of it. I'm really liking it!
