I've been making these things for years and for some reason I haven't in a long time. My first box from Washington's Green Grocer contained four lovely Roma tomatoes and as soon as I saw them I knew that they were destined to become these broiled, delicious beauties. Have I mentioned how glad I am that I signed up for the veggie delivery? I'm only a week in and already loving it!
Anyway, I hope someone ends up making these because these deserve a try. As long as you like tomatoes, I can almost guarantee that you're going to love these.
Serves 4 as a side dish
Time: 15 minutes including prep and cook time
4 Roma tomatoes
1 T. unsalted butter
3 medium sized garlic cloves, minced
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 t. parsley, chopped
Set the oven to broil.
Cut tomatoes in half and set aside. Pour cheese onto a small plate and set aside as well.
Melt the butter over medium heat in a small saute pan. Add the garlic and cook until garlic is fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minutes. Remove from heat.
Press the cut sides of the tomatoes into the butter mixture and then immediately into the cheese. Set on a baking sheet. If any butter mixture is left you can drizzle it over the tomatoes. Place in broiler for 3 to 4 minutes or until a golden crust forms on top of each tomato. Let sit for 5 minutes, sprinkle with parsley and then serve.
