I have a tasty giveaway for you guys today, sponsored by all natural Pomi Boxed Tomatoes from Italy. These are processed from fresh Italian tomatoes shortly after harvesting, and Pomi tomatoes are non-GMO and have no preservatives or added ingredients. Since they’re boxed rather than canned, they are also BPA-free — plus, the aseptic packaging is recyclable.
Now, I really should have read the directions on their site about how to open the box neatly before ripping on in… But I persevered nonetheless, and eventually popped open this lovely box of chopped tomatoes they sent over for review. These smelled great right out of the box, but were much more saucy than pictured.
I used about half the box to make Pomi Portobello Pizzas, using this basic recipe from last summer. Rather than using out of season fresh cherry tomatoes, however, I simply spiced up half a box of Pomi chopped tomatoes to make a nice chunky and flavorful sauce to fill each portobello cap, mixing them together with 1 tsp basil, 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper, and 1 tsp minced garlic.
After marinating the portobellos for about half an hour in some minced garlic, oregano, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and a little sea salt and black pepper, I filled each cap with the spiced up Pomi chopped tomatoes. I then topped each with mozzarella (some also got a little pepperoni and/or fresh spinach) and baked them on a foil-lined cookie sheet for 25 minutes at 400 degrees.
Pomi Portobello Pizzas were so good! I’m glad we still have the other half of the box, because I’m making these again this week. 🙂 Once you’ve opened your Pomi tomatoes, you can transfer any leftovers to another container and refrigerate up to ten days.
Want to try Pomi?
Check the store locator on their site. In Chicagoland, you should be able to find Pomi tomatoes at both Meijer and Jewel. (I am pretty sure I have also seen them at Whole Foods!) Also, give a go at the giveaway below, since one lucky Mashup Mom reader will win both chopped Pomi tomatoes and strained Pomi tomatoes for themselves. (Psst — make Pomi Portobello Pizza!)
