Type of tomato

Are you aware that each type of tomato is suitable for a specific type of dish? Thanks for this list; you will always know the type of tomato you should use from now on!

Regular tomatoes

 We are all in the know of these tomatoes because they are usually the cheapest ones. What do these tomatoes taste best in? Soups and stews. We should also talk about the fact that a regular tomato is a true allrounder because you can use it perfectly fine in salads, for example.

Vine tomatoes

This type of tomato is a bit more vibrantly red in color and usually tastes a little sweeter. They are the perfect option for a fresh salad. Also, they work very well on sandwiches!

Beef tomato

This type of tomato is a lot bigger than regular ones. As the name implies, it is a lot ‘meatier’ than other types of tomatoes. Due to their structure, they are well suited for hot dishes such as soups, sauces, and for example a nice risotto.

Cherry tomatoes

Cherry tomatoes are tiny in nature and hence a favorite by many people. They are nice to have as a snack in between meals and they taste nice and sweet. These tomatoes also go very well with cheese. Therefore, you might want to try adding these to a cheese pizza or risotto. Extra tip: do you wish to make a salad with regular tomatoes? Then try adding a few cherry tomatoes as well for a sweet twist!
