Today I am featuring an amazing condiment idea....tomato cheese powder! Scroll down for the how to!
Home Grown Tomatoes and Cheese Are My Favorites!
If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, or if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you might have realized by now that I LOVE me some tomatoes! I grow far too many every year, and use them throughout the year in many different forms.
Cheese is also one of my very favorite foods, and thankfully, it goes really well with tomatoes! I usually enjoy the two together in forms of pasta, pizza, bruschetta, cheese and tomato sandwiches......and now I have found a new way to enjoy them, tomato cheese powder!

Dehydrated Tomato Plus Cheese = Tomato Cheese Powder
Simply put, tomato cheese powder is exactly what is sounds like. You use tomato powder from dehydrated tomatoes, and parmesan cheese, and blend them together!
Tomato Cheese Powder Variants
I am already starting to imagine a couple of variants. Add in some basil, garlic or Italian seasoning, or some hot peppers. Use some different types of cheese just for fun. What would you add in?
Using Tomato Skins for Tomato Powder
Of course you could use any part of the tomato I imagine when making tomato cheese powder, but my first thought is to use the tomato skins that I peel off when I thaw my frozen tomatoes.
They are full of flavor and vitamins and usually go to the compost pile since it is generally not safe to can with tomatoes with skin on. So why not use them to dehydrate and make tomato powder with?
Cherry Tomatoes for Tomato Powder
Another great option for making tomato powder, would be to dehydrate cherry tomatoes. I always grow too many, and they usually also get thrown in the freezer, but these would be easy to slice in half and dehydrate.
How to Make Tomato Cheese Powder
To make Tomato Cheese Powder, you simply combine equal parts dehydrated tomatoes and cheese. You can dehydrate sliced tomatoes, or halved cherry tomatoes or just the tomato skins you may have saved from canning tomatoes. See my article How to Freeze Tomatoes From Your Garden for a simple way to remove tomato skins!
I like to use parmesan cheese for tomato cheese powder but you can use any cheese that is very finely grated into an almost dust. Simply mix the same amount of dehydrated tomato powder and parmesan cheese together in a mason jar. Put the lid on and shake! Then store in the fridge.
Try it on so many things! On pasta, corn on the cob, popcorn, on top of casseroles! The list is endless! I hope you enjoy!
