Canned tomatoes should be a staple in every pantry or kitchen. For starters, they're extremely good for you — an excellent source of Vitamins C, A and K, a quality source of heart-healthy potassium and a good source of fiber. Tomatoes are also the best source of the carotenoid pigment lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risks of heart disease and cancer. 

Canned tomatoes are at the heart of many soups, sauces, chilis and stews. Plus, you don't have to wait until tomato season to enjoy your favorite tomato-based dish. If you have canned tomatoes, you only need a few more ingredients to put together these wholesome, healthy recipes. Pass the can opener!
