3 inspired ways with canned tomatoes

Think you’ve done all you possibly can with them? Here are three inspired ideas for using canned tomatoes.

10-minute tomato sauce

Use it on pasta, burgers, pizzas or anything that needs a zingy kick. It also freezes well, so you can double the quantity and keep some for later.

The swaps: Swap dried oregano – or mixed herbs – for fresh basil, and swap any vinegar for red wine vinegar.

Chilli con carne-spiced nacho bean bake

Who says you can have chips for dinner? Here they add a pleasant crisp texture to an otherwise soft dish.

The swaps: Leave the nachos off if you don’t have any and simply serve this with crusty bread.  You can also play around with the combination of beans and throw in any you have at home.

Tomato-poached eggs with roast red pepper pesto

The perfect breakfast-for-dinner dish, this is a great way of using up bits of pestos or pastes you might have knocking about.

The swaps: Any pesto will work in the place of red pepper pesto. Bulk it up by adding chickpeas or beans and you’ve got a satisfyingly hearty meal ready in minutes.
