Incredibly tasty, and this fresh tomato recipe couldn't be easier to pull together - your tomato-based side dish could be hearty enough to use as a main dish if you prefer. Considering our team's hefty appetites, we like to pair this with a lovely fresh buffalo-milk mozzarella or a juicy cut of bistecca alla Fiorentina, the infamous Florentine t-steak - an incredible meal to celebrate special moments or just casual every-day meals. If you're not up to making a whole grilled T-bone steak, try pairing these tomatoes with Mamablip's Rolled Veal with Ham and Cheese, or a tasty Veal Saltimbocca entrèe. Don't overlook the fish option: have you thought about the perfect pairing that are roasted tomatoes and Creamed Cod with Polenta?
But be sure you share the love with your family and friends - meals like this are perfect for sharing and caring together.
We adore this super-quick way tomato recipe that brings out the best of our beloved tomatoes, and we're sure you'll also find them incredibly tasty prepared following this method.
Prepare the tomatoes
Carefully wash and dry tomatoes. Using sharp kitchen knife, cut each tomato in half, and using small teaspoon, eliminate inner seeds and liquids from each tomato.
Line plate or baking tray with waxed paper, set aside. Sprinkle each tomato half with a bit of table salt, and place cut side down onto waxed paper and allow liquids to drain out for approximately 30 minutes.
Prepare the herb blend
Carefully wash and dry fresh herb blend. Remove fresh herb leaves from stems and reserve leaves. Finely dice all, and blend together in small bowl. Remove skin from garlic and finely mince, adding to bowl with herbs.
Zest only orange or yellow (depending on citrus used in recipe) part of fruit rind, add to bowl with other aromatics and blend well.
Bake the tomatoes and finish dish
Preheat oven to 180C.
Line baking tray with dampened waxed paper, and drizzle each tomato half with extra-virgin olive oil. Dress each tomato half with a teaspoon (or to taste) with aromatic blend, and place onto prepared baking sheet. Drizzle prepared tomatoes with more olive oil, cover all seasoned tomatoes with layer of tin foil, and place into preheated oven. Bake approximately 30 minutes.
At 30-minute mark, remove tin foil, and return to oven to bake until cooked through and completely softened.
Remove from oven, allow to settle for a few minutes, and serve with your favorite main dishes. Serve warm.
