INGREDIENTS: yield: 2
– 1 large tomato (any kind will work)
– vegetable oil
– salt and pepper, to taste
– 1-2 basil leaves
1) Cut your tomato in half. Wash and rinse out all the seeds in both halves. 2) Baste both halves in vegetable oil using a spoon or baster. Add salt and pepper to season. 3) Turn the stove onto medium heat. Place a pan on top of the heat and let it warm up for at least 2 minutes. 4) Place the tomato halves face down/ cut side down and grill for 3-4 minutes. I like a nice crunch to it, so I grill it for 4 minutes. When the time is up, remove tomato and pan from heat. Let the tomatoes cool for at least 5 minutes. Then baste with more oil, season again with a little salt and pepper, and garnish with fresh chopped basil. You can do this for as many tomatoes as you would like. Serve warm. Enjoy!
