What We're Cooking: Tomatoes!

 

Bright red, juicy, and sweet—what’s not to love about tomatoes? We at ChopChop can’t get enough!  Check out these fun facts about the tasty treat:

  • Because tomatoes have seeds and grow from flowering plants, they are classed as a fruit, not a vegetable!
  • Almost all tomatoes are red, but other colors are possible including green, yellow, orange, pink, brown, black, purple and even striped!
  • Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, an antioxidant that is good for the heart and effective against certain cancers!  They’re also packed with vitamins A and C, calcium, potassium.
  • You can get fresh tomatoes
