Rehydrate Dried Tomatoes and Marinate in Oil

Rehydrate Dried Tomatoes and Marinate in Oil

Dried tomatoes are cheap so I made this. The oil can be used in pasta, and it's just easy to make.

Ingredients: 50 g of dried tomatoes' worth

Dried tomatoes
50 g
3-5 cloves
to taste
Dried basil leaves
to taste
Red chili peppers
as needed
Black pepper
to taste
Olive oil
Enough to cover
1 tablespoon


1. Bring 500 ml of water to a boil. Add the vinegar and dried tomatoes to it, and leave it to soak for 15 to 20 seconds. Drain the tomatoes into a colander. I left the tomatoes to soak overnight. Do not peel the tomatoes!
2. Put the rehydrated dried tomaties, sliced garlic, spices and herbs into a clean container. Add enough olive oil to cover.
3. Chop up the tomatoes and put them in pasta or salad. Keep refrigerated, and use up within 1-2 months.
