Recipe Information
This is a wonderful way to enjoy fresh tomatoes from the garden when the bounty is abundant. It is also a delicious and elegant side dish.

S. Chokel

Serves/Makes:6 servings of one tomato each

  • 6 firm medium sized tomaotes
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) of salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) black pepper or to taste
  • 1-1/2 tbsp (20 ml) chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) chopped fresh basil or 1 tsp (5 ml) dried
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil
  • Oil a large shallow baking dish.
  • Cut tomatoes horizontally and place cut side UP in the dish.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Combine parsley, basil, and garlic and sprinkle over the tomatoes.
  • Drizzle 1/4 tsp (1 ml) of olive oil on each tomato half.
  • Bake at 400 degrees (200 C.) for 20-25 minutes.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
As a hint, I sometimes mix 1/3 cup of dry breadcrumbs and 1/3 cup of parmesan cheese together with the parsley and basil for a different crispier cheesey flavor and texture.

These go extremely wonderful with grilled meats, roasted meats or a side dish for seafood kabobs with pineapple, green pepper and onion.
