Tomatoes are at the heart of so many everyday dishes, whether that be a rich bolognaise, a curry or a pizza. So whether you're a newbie in the kitchen or an ambitious home cook, you're likely going to need to get to grips with using tomatoes in some form. With their new culinary tomatoes range, Heinz have made things easier and more accessible than ever before.

All made using the sun-ripened Italian tomatoes that Heinz are famous for, products in the range include the likes of tomato purée and chopped tomatoes for those wanting to cook completely from scratch, as well as ready-to-use tomato-based cooking sauces for those who might need a bit more of a helping hand. These range from a curry tomato base to a tomato and basil passata, all made from delicious, rich Heinz tomatoes.

We tasked renowned chefs Avinash Shashidhara and Helen Graham to create some exclusive recipes, showcasing the different ways in which Heinz's culinary tomato products can be used in the kitchen, as well as creating some recipes of our own in GBC Kitchen. Check out these recipes below and start making use of the range.

Helen's Heinz creations

Helen Graham uses a combination of different Heinz tomato products in these three delicious yet easy to replicate recipes. Whilst the braised cabbage simply uses Heinz concentrated tomato purée, her pasta dish and the frittata use the basil passata and curried tomato base respectively, to provide an added whack of flavour.

Raising the temperature

Avinash Shashidhara's stunning recipes all showcase how Heinz's tomatoes can be used in Indian cookery. While the pulao and the chicken curry both make use of Heinz's tinned tomatoes, Avi's peas and paneer butter masala uses a combination of tomato purée and peeled tomatoes to create a deeply savoury gravy.

Tomato triumphs

Our crowd-pleasing beef enchiladas recipe is made even easier by using Heinz's tomato chilli passata as the sauce, for the perfect kick. For something a little more Italian in feel, why not try our Sicilian-style pizza recipe topped with Heinz's pizza sauce or alternatively our moreish garlic dough balls served with a delicious tomato dipping sauce?
