Serves
4

  • 8 tomatoes, halved
  • 3 handfuls cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 2 tsp fresh chives, chopped (optional)
  • 2 tbsp white or wholemeal breadcrumbs (dried not fresh)
  • 4 tsp parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 4 slices wholemeal bread
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper

1

Preheat the oven to 190°C/fan oven 170°C/gas mark 5.

Arrange the tomatoes, cut sides up, on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the dried herbs and chives (if using) and season with black pepper. Roast for 10 minutes, then sprinkle the breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese over them. Roast for 5 more minutes.

If you're vegetarian, make sure you choose a vegetarian version of parmesan cheese.

Meanwhile, toast the bread. Place the toast on warmed plates and share the tomatoes between them. Sprinkle with a little extra black pepper, then serve.

For a change, stuff the baked tomatoes into warmed wholemeal pittas.
