Annie Bell’s deliciously fresh and flavour-drenched tomato recipes make summer’s hottest harvest the superstar of the season.

Honeyed tomato soup

This is my go-to thick tomato soup: a mass of vine tomatoes concentrated by roasting, accentuated by honey, chilli and balsamic vinegar.

Tuna tabbouleh

With its sprightly lemon punch, tabbouleh is a great side for tuna but this classic salad can also be served on its own or with any other mezze offerings.

Oven-baked tomato quinoa risotto

This wholegrain risotto has a healthier edge over white rice ones, while being every bit as comforting. It’s an easy one-pot dish that makes a great veggie main. You could also serve some roasted veg on top.

A simple ruse for elevating a humble tomato salad for a light lunch or as a side for a barbecue.

Tomato and scamorza pizza

I love this pizza, with slices of tomato rather than a sauce. Scamorza is perfectly gooey on top but, being a dry cheese, there is no risk of it oozing liquid.

One-pot chicken with cherry tomatoes and peas

Fresh peas are wonderful here as they soak up the scent of the garlic and herbs. When not in season, frozen will do.

Bloody Mary

This is just as good made with gin instead of vodka, in which case it is called a Red Snapper.

Sun-dried tomato sables

Homemade cocktail shortbreads are my holy grail when it comes to drinks. Especially good with the tomato double-up of a Bloody Mary.
