I love to try new things and the other day I went to the market found Kumato Tomatoes and needed to try. The flavor is so intense so you don’t need to condiment a lot just let the flavor of the tomatoes be the star of the dish. Kumato tomatoes are very popular in Spain, Belgium, France, Greece and the Netherlands. These type of tomatoes are green reddish brown and have higher fructose content. They are sweet and have an intense tomato flavor, decadent and go perfect paired with simple ingredients.


  • 3 Kumato tomatoes
  • 4-6 slices of Queso Fresco
  • 1/2 cup of fresh basil leaves
  • Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper

Preparation time: 15 minutes. Serves 2-4  servings. Approximate cost per person $2.00 depending on local ingredients cost. You will need a paring knife, cutting board and a serving plate.

Wash the tomatoes and slice, place in a plate and accompany with slices of queso fresco, fresh basil leaves. Drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar condiment with salt and pepper.

    Mujer, those look fabulous!! Don’t think they have those in the regular markets here, so I’ll be checking for them next time I go up to the big city. I’m thinking that pic you have there would be a perfect summer meal- filling, appetizing, delish, and no cooking!!! Gracias y BB2U

      Hi Sonia, the Kumato tomatoes are sold at Walmart I’m sure you can find those there if not you can use any kind you like best, the combo with queso fresco goes great with any tomato kind. Thanks for stopping by!
