At Marley Spoon, we’re all about championing local producers wherever we can. And that’s probably never been more important than it is now. As canned tomatoes are such a key ingredient in our pantry (a whopping 1 in 10 Marley Spoon recipes call for canned tomatoes!), we put a lot of store in our canned tomato supplier; they need to not just be Australian, but offer the brightest, juiciest, best-flavoured tomatoes available. We’re proud to partner with Ardmona for all our canned tomatoes – their tomatoes are grown in Victoria’s Goulburn Valley, are carefully selected for optimum freshness and are picked, then packed, within 24 hours of harvest to best preserve flavour and goodness. We couldn’t find a better tomato if we tried! The best part is, you don’t just get fantastic tomatoes, you’re also doing great work by supporting Aussie farmers.
Now, we’ve added Ardmona’s canned cherry tomatoes to our pantry and they’re a total winner. Gloriously rich with natural flavour, they’re a key ingredient in many of our globally inspired dishes. Recipes such as 20-Minute Barramundi Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes, Zucchini and Spinach; Spanish Orange-Braised Chicken with Crushed White Beans; and Reduced-Carb Spicy Lamb Soup with Tomato, Cabbage and Green Beans all feature the vibrant flavour-pops that are Ardmona canned cherry tomatoes.
Of course, we're also huge fans of Ardmona chopped canned tomatoes. They’ve become a vital part of the Marley Spoon pantry, shining bright in a diverse range of our recipes. Vegetarian Pasta Ragu with Plant-Based Mince & Parmesan and Family Fave Chicken and Mash with Italian-Style Tomato Sauce are just two delicious examples.
The goodness of tomatoes gets a big tick of approval from our in-house nutritionist and registered dietitian, Rachel Scoular. “Ardmona canned tomatoes feature in so many Marley Spoon dishes; they are nutrient-rich, and high in potassium and dietary fiber. Canned tomatoes also contain a notable level of lycopene, an antioxidant linked to supporting good heart health,” says Rachel.
As our exclusive canned tomato supplier, you’ll find Ardmona tins in our boxes every week!
