Grape Tomato Confit Recipe

Easy Savory Garnish Perfect for Breakfast to Dinner dishes.

Do you ever want to jazz up a dish and take it to the next level? A great garnish always helps. This Grape Tomato Confit is a big hit with our guests. It adds so much flavor as a savory garnish to egg dishes, from Frittatas to Quiche, while keeping fat and sugars down.

Tomatoes are low in fat and carbs (with just 2.4 g of net carbs per ½ cup). Olive oil, garlic and fresh herbs add to the flavor and are all keto-friendly and good for you. We like to accommodate every guests’ dietary needs.
