Tomato Water

Tomato Water


The fragrant rose-colored liquid that releases from a ripe tomato after it's been cut transforms a vinaigrette or a cocktail, and can also replace stock in a variety of dishes.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds beefsteak tomatoes (about 3)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves with tender stems
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 2 medium shallots, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp. white wine vinegar

Recipe Preparation

  • Line a fine-mesh sieve with cheesecloth; set over a large bowl. Pulse tomatoes, shallots, garlic, basil, cilantro, parsley, vinegar, and salt in a food processor until coarsely chopped.

  • Transfer mixture to prepared sieve. Cover and chill at least 12 hours. (Do not stir or press on solids, or tomato water will be cloudy). Discard solids; cover tomato water and chill.

  • DO AHEAD: Tomato water can be made 3 days ahead. Keep chilled.
