Tomatoes Provençal

Serves 6
Ideal as side dish or brunch feature, these easy-to-prepare tomatoes can be served either warm or at room temperature. Stuffed with a simple mix of breadcrumbs (panko in this case for a better crunch), finely minced garlic and chopped parsley and then drizzled with a little bit of olive oil, they look as good as they taste.

Preheat oven to 300°F.

Wash tomatoes and slice top about one inch from top. Using a small spoon, scoop inside removing all seeds and center. Place in a baking sheet standing up. Sprinkle insides with salt and pepper.

Make sure your parsley is well dried after cleaning. In a large mixing bowl, toss parsley, breadcrumbs and minced garlic together. Add 2 pinches of salt and some fresh pepper. Using a spoon, fill insides of tomatoes with breadcrumb mix to top. Sprinkle each tomato with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Place baking sheet in the oven. Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly brown on the top and heated through. These tomatoes can either be served warm or let cool and served at room temperature.
