Here’s another wonderful side dish for the holidays. I love making Vegetable Tianbut this time I decided to keep it all about the tomatoes. I recently picked up some beautiful yellow tomatoes at the store and decided to make a tian using them along with some Roma tomatoes I already had on hand. I topped the baked tomatoes with shredded Parmesan cheese and Italian flavored panko as well as fresh chopped basil. This dish was easy to make and it tasted delicious.
How to Make a Tomato Tian:Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
- 4 firm yellow tomatoes
- 4 firm red tomatoes (I used Roma)
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
- Drizzle of olive oil
- Parmesan cheese, shredded
- Italian flavored panko crumbs
- Fresh basil, chopped
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a circular baking dish with cooking spray.
Slice the tomatoes into thick slices then layer them alternately in the baking dish, fitting them into a tight spiral, making only one layer. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste then drizzle them with a bit of olive oil.
Place into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn the oven to broil. Sprinkle the tomatoes with Parmesan cheese and panko crumbs then place under the broiler, on the middle rack, for 1-2 minutes or until the panko crumbs are golden brown. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with freshly chopped basil. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
