I found these lovely heirloom tomatoes at the food market and planned a spontaneous dish with them. These crusted baked heirloom tomatoes are a great starter or side to any dinner and quick to make. The dish also has that summer feel to it. Have a read how easy it is.
3 heirloom tomatoes
1 tbsp basil infused olive oil
1 garlic clove
1 tbsp breadcrumbs
1 tbsp grated vegetarian pasta cheese
1 tsp oregano
¼ tsp chilli flakes
¼ tsp ground black pepper
½ tsp sea salt
Cut the tomatoes in halves, place them in an oven dish and drizzle basil infused olive oil on the top.
Chop the garlic finely and grate the cheese. Mix these with the rest of the ingredients and sprinkle on the top of the tomatoes.
Bake the tomatoes at 180C for about 30 minutes until the crust is crispy and the tomatoes are baked to a succulent state.
Serve the tomatoes on top of pasta, with crusty bread, as canapés or on the side of veggie burgers. They would compliment many things, so just get creative.
