Roma Tomatoes with Feta and Basil

My friends Brian and Christina served this simple dish at a dinner party at their house. Christina made it in their toaster oven! I never thought something so easy could be so incredibly delicious.

Ingredients

  • 2 Roma tomatoes
  • 4 Tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 leaves basil, finely chopped

Directions

Preheat the oven or toaster oven to 400 degrees.

Cut the tomatoes in half and remove the cores, creating 4 halves. Fill each tomato with 1 tablespoon cheese, making sure it’s fully packed in. Sprinkle a little bit of chopped basil on each.

Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet or the tray of the toaster oven. They may roll to their sides, but if packed correctly, the cheese won’t fall out.
Bake for 5-8 minutes. They are done when the tomato skins are slightly shriveled and the cheese tops are golden brown.

Tomato Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Tomato Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
