Vegetable culture tomato (lat. Solanum lycopersicum) of the Solanaceae family is grown to produce edible berries-fruits that differ in taste, shape, color, and are often called tomatoes. The fruits have high taste, nutritional and dietary properties. Dried tomato is devoid of moisture, but its chemical and mineral composition is not inferior in value to fresh.

Useful properties of tomatoes and their use in cooking
Dried tomatoes are rich in vitamins, minerals, sugars and dietary fiber. When dried, they retain a powerful hepatoprotector and antioxidant lycopene, a carotenoid pigment that is responsible for the red and orange color of the fruit.
The calorie content of dried tomatoes is 12 times higher than that of fresh ones. Dried and dried vegetables are endowed with a richer taste and spicy aroma. To spice up a sauce, meat, pizza, pasta or first course, you need a minimum amount of tomato flakes or powder. Seasoning will especially help out in the cold season, when the season of fresh vegetables has not yet arrived.
Chopped tomatoes can be used not only in the dry version, but also in the restored one. To do this, a few hours before cooking, tomato flakes are poured with a small amount of water in a ratio of 2: 1 to swell.
