Broiled Tomatoes


4 tomato Tomatoes
1 Tbsp. Olive oil
4 clove Garlic, raw (minced)
4 Tbsp Fresh basil (or other fresh herb)
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp., ground Black pepper
2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese (grated)


Preheat broiler to medium high heat.

Cut tomatoes in half and place cut side up on an unlined sheet pan. (Note: if tomatoes are very large you may need to cut them in thirds.)

Combine oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Brush mixture over the cut side of the tomatoes.

Broil until tomatoes start to soften, about 4 minutes. Once softened, top with cheese and cook for another minute to brown the cheese.

Top the broiled tomatoes with fresh herbs and serve warm.

This quick and easy side dish is a great addition to a weeknight dinner or brunch. Broiling the tomatoes and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese brings out more umami flavor.

"At the end of the day, you can't compete with Mother Nature. If you've got a great tomato, just a pinch of sea salt is all you need."
