Sun-dried tomatoes are more than just a passing fad; they're packed with intense flavor and more disease-fighting antioxidants than the fresh variety.
They are also undeniably better than the flaccid tomatoes you find in the produce aisle when the summer season has come and gone, with an indescribable umami quality and pleasing chew factor that plays well in pasta salads and sauces, grain dishes, mixed green salads, and more. Plus, sun-dried tomatoes make a tasty topping for crostini and pizza.
Year-round availability and versatility aside, sun-dried tomatoes have a leg up on their fresh counterparts in another important aspect: They have about 20 percent more of the antioxidant lycopene, considered to be the most potent type of carotenoid, which has been linked with a reduced risk of developing stroke and heart disease as well as certain types of cancer, notably of the prostate and colon. Benefits such as these never go out of style.
