Here’s how to make the most of the abundance of sun-ripened TOMATOES, AUBERGINES and BROAD BEANS



British tomatoes are in their element now, rich in flavour and nutrients. Experiment with the wonderful variety available

Nutritional reasons to buy

Tomatoes are packed with a carotenoid called lycopene, good intakes of which have been linked to a reduced risk of some cancers and heart disease. Recent research also suggests that higher blood levels of carotenoids may be linked with stronger bones. The absorption of lycopene is improved when tomatoes are cooked or processed (the cell walls are broken down, making it more available), so turning them into a sauce is a great idea. Fat also helps the body to absorb lycopene, so don’t be afraid to drizzle a little olive oil over fresh tomatoes.
