Roasted Jubilee tomatoes with a fresh herb crust


These tomatoes, when topped with a herby breadcrumb mixture, make a very nice starter or side dish. If you do not wish to use breadcrumbs, a substitute such as toasted pine nuts could be used instead...

Ingredients:
Serves 8
4 Jubilee tomatoes
1 slice white bread (or toasted pine nuts if preferred)
1 tsp fresh thyme leaves, chopped
1 tbsp fresh parsley leaves, chopped
1 tsp fresh chives, chopped
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
4 tsp wholegrain mustard


Method:
1. Remove the tomatoes from the vine and wash. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Toast the bread, then remove the crusts and blitz in a food processor to make crumbs. Add the herbs, oil and garlic and pulse briefly to mix. Season.
2. Halve the tomatoes and put one layer into a shallow ovenproof dish. Spread the cut surfaces with a little mustard then generously cover with the herb crumb mix. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the topping is crunchy and lightly browned.
