Even single ingredients like tomatoes inspire all sorts of dishes for their flavor.

Tomatoes are a good source of umami flavor. Tomatoes are used in a variety of dishes, sauces, salads, and drinks, both raw and cooked.

While tomatoes are fruits — botanically categorized as berries, they are commonly used as a vegetable ingredient or side dish. Tomatoes alone have a plethora of easy recipes.

When it comes to eggs, of course, there’s no beating them in terms of versatility.

Eggs are one of the most versatile cooking ingredients. They play an important role in many aspects of the food industry.

So why not combine these two to make an interesting omelet design?
