Canned tomatoes are the hidden gem of the vegetable world. A convenient pantry staple that can be added to any of these recipes for an instant nutrition bonus.

 

As dietitians, we uphold a code of ethics that promotes the distribution of evidence-based nutrition advice. As nutrition communication professionals we abide by the rules of full disclosure. And, as foodies, we strive to bring you the most drop-dead gorgeous and delicious recipes the web has to offer.

It has come to our attention that a certain publication has not shined so bright a light on canned tomatoes. Have no fear because canned tomatoes (nor any other food) do not have levels of BPA that are considered harmful according to the FDA. In fact, over 90% of the canned tomato industry doesn't even use BPA anyway! Canned vegetables like tomatoes are an excellent way to reach your fruit and vegetable goals on any given day AND there are over 650 studies that reveal their health benefits. 

We could go on and on, but here are a handful of recipes that beautifully plead the case for canned tomatoes.
