Sometimes the simplest things can make a great side dish. You don’t need elaborate oils, special vegetables, or fancy herbs. This time, less is more.
GARLIC PARMESAN GRILLED TOMATOES
- 8 roma tomatoes, halved
- 6 tbsp olive oil
- 6 cloves garlic, crushed well
- ¼ tsp dried thyme
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan
Preheat outdoor grill to medium-high heat.
In a small skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic cloves and thyme. Stir frequently and flip cloves as they turn golden brown on each side. When crispy, remove from oil and set on a cutting board to cool. Remove pan from heat and stir in Parmesan until a paste forms. Scoop into a small mixing bowl. Mince cooled garlic finely. Add garlic to Parmesan mixture.
Place tomato halves on grill cut side down for 2 minutes. Flip over and spoon a small amount of Parmesan mixture onto each tomato. Gril for another few minutes until skin begins to peel from sides. Serve immediately.
Makes 4 servings. Enjoy!
