Sweet Tomato compote & yogurt cream

No comments:
 This is an unusual, yet delicious dessert. Sweet tomato compote with a sweet vanilla yogurt cream underneath. Most people will oooh and eeeek at the idea of using tomatoes in a pudding but I promise it tastes delicious and you almost can't tell they are in there they just add a little extra kick to the finished dish. 
The tomatoes cook down with lots of sugar and cinnamon until they are deliciously soft and sweet to taste.  

I used a tomato per person, so however many you are cooking for allow one large tomato each. 

3 large tomatoes
1 cinnamon stick 
150g caster sugar 
250ml water
4 tbsp Greek total yogurt 
1 tsp vanilla paste 
2 tbsp skimmed milk 

Start by making your compote, as this needs to simmer for a while until it becomes sticky and syrupy. 
Mix the water, sugar and cinnamon stick in a pan over a medium heat, stir until the sugar has melted. Then add your tomato and allow to simmer for about 45 mins, or until thick and jam like.

Next make your creamy sweet yogurt. mix the yogurt, vanilla paste and milk together until well mixed and easy to spoon into your serving glasses.

Place an even amount into each glass and then, once your compote is done allow to cool before pilling a good helping on top of each.

leave them to once side until you are ready to serve. An unusual dish to serve up one summer evening.
