    Chef floWer's Note:

    If you love tomatoes like I do, then you may enjoy this recipe. It's a quick side dish/plate filler that doesn't have too many ingredients, it's healthy and tastes nice. Original recipe calls for Roma and Plum tomatoes but I use what is in season. This recipe comes from a book called "Purely Golden Door" by The Golden Door Health Retreats.

      I had some hard "bullet" tomatoes, and this really made them tasty! I cut them in half, salt and peppered, then put them cut side down in a frypan with a little butter. I added the balsamic, then slid them on top of the fresh basil and put them in the oven. I baked them slowly for about an hour, (the men were late :) wonderful side dish with bacon and eggs!

      It doesn't get any easier than this. I made this as a side dish at my in-law's house because they love tomatoes as much as I do. We had these tomatoes along with some grilled chicken, asparagus and scalloped potatoes. Everyone loved these tomatoes. We baked them for 18 minutes and they were still a little firm, which we thought was just the right texture. The balsamic vinegar, basil and seasonings were the perfect blend with the tomatoes. We like balsamic vinegar so we used a bit more than the 1 tablespoon called for in the recipe. This recipe is so fast and easy that I will be using it often. Thanks for another great recipe, Chef floWer. Made for October 2011 Aus/NZ Swap.
