Garlic Baked Tomatoes Recipe

Garlic Baked Tomatoes Recipes

Ingredients :

40 g


5 ml


unsalted butter

large garlic clove, crushed

finely grated orange rind

firm plum tomatoes, or 2 large beef tomatoes

salt and black pepper

shredded basil leaves, to garnish

Method :
  1. Soften the butter and blend with the crushed garlic, orange rind, and seasoning.
  2. Chill for a few minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
  4. Halve the tomatoes crossways and trim the bases so they stand.
  5. Place the tomatoes in an oven proof dish and spread the butter equally over each tomato half.
  6. Bake the tomatoes in the oven for 15 - 25 minutes, depending on the size of the tomato halves, until just tender.
  7. Serve sprinkled with the basil.

Serves 4

If you can find them, use Italian plum tomatoes, which have a warm, slightly sweet flavour. For large numbers of people you could use the very tiny tomatoes, not halved but tossed several times during cooking.

Freezer Note :

Garlic butter is well worth keeping in the freezer. Make it up as above, or omit the orange rind and add chopped fresh parsley. Freeze in thick slices or chunks ready to use, or roll into a sausage shape and wrap in foil, then cut into slices when partly defrosted.
