Grilled Tomatoes

These go great as a side dish to accompany any Italian style dish such as pasta.


  • 9 medium sized tomatoes, washed
  • 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • olive oil for drizzling
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the grill (or broiler if you're North American) on a medium/high heat
  2. Cut each of the tomatoes in half so that the top where the stalk attaches is in the middle of one of the halves.
  3. Arrange the tomatoes on a baking tray, cut side up.
  4. Place the garlic slices on top of the tomatoes.
  5. Drizzle the olive oil over each tomato half, you want a couple of drops on each one.
  6. Season with ground black pepper.
  7. Place under the grill/broiler and cook for between 5 and 10 minutes, depending on how long it takes the top to cook nicely.
Serves 3, but easily expandable up to as many people as you need, just use more tomatoes.
