One thought on “Tomato Olive – Serves 4

  1. What’s the nutritive and/or culinary directive on removing the seeds (and juice, in this case) from tomatoes? I would think the seeds would be little powerhouses of energy and nutrition, but so many recipes call for removing them. I have *always* wondered about this and am kinda surprised to find a raw advocate also making such a recommendation. Thanks!
