Sun dried tomatoes are an Italian invention, popular in a range of cuisines. Traditionally, freshly sliced tomatoes are left out in the sun to dry. If there’s no time, there are quicker methods for “sun-drying”, like cooking them in an oven on a low heat. They have an intense sweet-tart taste which can be useful in cooking or for adding to antipasto platters.
If you can’t get your hands on sun dried tomatoes, or the taste doesn’t appeal, then you’ll need a replacement option. We’ve created a handy infographic which gives you quick answers on what to use as a substitute. Keep in mind that no alternative will provide a perfect match to the original ingredient; but they won’t taste out of place in most dishes either.
