  • Fresh tomatoes, crushed tomatoes or diced tomatoes


  • From Fresh Tomatoes: Peel and core plum tomatoes to create your own whole peeled tomatoes. Use one pound (approx. 5-6 tomatoes) to replace one 14.5 oz. can. Use two pounds (approx. 10-12 tomatoes) to replace one 28 oz. can.
  • From Crushed or Diced Tomatoes: Replace can for can. Use crushed, if you’re making a slow-cooked dish, or a soup or sauce with a smooth texture. Use diced, if you’re making a dish with a short cook time, or chunkier texture. Since crushed and diced tomatoes have already undergone some cooking, you may find that your recipe doesn’t require as much cook time. You may also find that you’re able to skip a couple steps in your recipe.
