Tomato Caramel Vegan Sundae
This is less of a recipe, more of a proposal: can you make a truly decadent, sweet-savory, lusciously creamy sundae with plants? Yes, please.
In this sundae, Tomato Caramel replaces caramel sauce. Made with coconut not dairy, it is entirely vegan but still imparts the buttery taste of salted caramel with a hint of sweetness from the tomato. Aged balsamic vinegar steps in for hot fudge, lending the bitter bite of pure dark chocolate. Topped with fresh basil, this plant-based dessert walks the line of savory and sweet -- a sundae for adults, or aspiring ones.

2 Tbs. basil leaves, cut chiffonade
