There’s plenty of bright, sweet, juicy liquid in the bottom of the can, and it feels hearty and eats like bites of fresh tomato. Muir-glen-can-3

    I am obsessed with those tomatoes – i swear they are the best canned tomatoes. And also, roasted cauliflower is already my fav – as nachos – um genius
