Does anyone else miss tomatoes? I know everything has its time and season, but I yearn for the days of fresh tomatoes tucked into salads and sandwiches, or layered into galettes and tarts. Or how about those warm nights when a simple slice and sprinkle of salt transformed tomatoes into unforgettable dinners?

Unfortunately, we have a long way to go before tomato season. But I’m coping with the beautiful bounty that comes via cans. (Okay, coping might be a stretch—we all know canned tomatoes are pantry superstars.) Need some inspiration? Here are 11 tomato-filled dishes that you can still enjoy in the dead of winter. Tomato salads will just have to wait.
