WELCOME TO TINNED TOMATOES


Are you starting the journey to a vegetarian or vegan diet or  just looking for tasty recipes that are easy to follow with no fancy ingredients?

If you are Tinned Tomatoes is the blog for you!




JACQUELINE


I'm Jac, a Scottish food writer and recipe developer who specialises in easy family vegetarian and vegan recipes.

I live in Scotland with my husband (who likes to stay as far away from the kitchen as possible, unless I'm passing him some food), my son and two daft dogs.



WHY TINNED TOMATOES?


So you're wondering why I called my blog Tinned Tomatoes?

Yes they are bloomin' tasty and convenient.

No, I don't include tinned tomatoes in every dish  and I definitely don't bake with them.

When I started this blog in 2007 most of my favourite recipes started with a tin of tomatoes, so when I was naming my blog I decided to call in Tinned Tomatoes.

Tinned Tomatoes was my starting point but also a reminder to myself to move beyond tinned tomatoes and be more creative.


BEING VEGGIE


I became vegetarian 29 years ago, but when my husband became vegan 10 years ago our diet changed and dinners became vegan. My blog started to reflect this and most of my recipes are vegan now.

Check out my recipe index for all my easy vegetarian or vegan recipes. You can also search for ingredients or recipes using the search button.
