Tomato Sorbet
Spicy Savory Sorbet with onion, sugar, red wine vinegar and Cayenne Pepper


Made with cayenne pepper to give it a 'kick'. I like to serve it with a Salad or Shrimp.

Recipe Type: sorbet, tomato, savory sorbet, ramekins

Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time: 15 min
Servings: 4


1/2 cup tomatoes, roughly chopped
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons onion, roughly chopped
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
pinch of Cayenne pepper, add more for spicier
4 (1/4 cup) ramekins, lined with plastic wrap


In a saucepan bring tomatoes, water, sugar and onion to a boil, lower temperature and simmer 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer mixture to a mini food processor, puree until smooth; strain, discard solids, pour into a small bowl. Add vinegar, salt and cayenne pepper to taste blending well.

Spoon mixture into prepared ramekins (this makes it easy to serve), cover and freeze. When ready to serve invert ramekins onto individual plates,remove plastic wrap and garnish with balsamic glaze (available at Trader Joe's).

Note: Another idea for serving: Put into a small bowl; freeze. When ready to serve use a melon baller to make tiny balls. Serve 1 to 3 balls in stemmed cordial glasses or place on each plate alongside a salad or seafood dish. This method will serve approximately 8.

wine Wine recommendation: Pinot Gris; Chardonnay
