How To Make GRILLED TOMATOES WITH BASIL LEAVES
- A Few Firms Ripe Tomatoes
- Few Fresh Basil Leaves (As to your preference)
- Olive Oil (As to your preference)
- Black Pepper (As to your preference)
- Salt (As to your preference)
Remark: Tomato Not overly ripe or they will fall apart when you grill them.
Cut tomatoes in half, around the middle, and remove the watery pulp and seeds from tomatoes. (Although the seeds and pulp contain a lot of flavor, when you grill the tomatoes they are going to be lost anyway.)
Preheat the kitchen grill pan or outside grill for direct grilling, for the outside grill use a grill basket or fine grill grate if you can, it will make it much easier to cook the tomatoes (or any other vegetables you grill).
Season the tomatoes with salt and black pepper as to your preference. For the outside grill, brush the sliced side of the tomatoes and the grill grate-pan with olive oil.
Place the sliced tomatoes, sliced side down on the grill, cover the grill and let it cook for about 4 minutes, but check on them after 2 minutes. Use a metal spatula to lift tomatoes off of the grill for serving.
Grab some thinly sliced basil leaves, roll them up, and then slice them to make nice thin slices.
Place on a serving dish, cut side facing upwards, drizzle a little more olive oil as to your preference on the tomatoes, sprinkle with just a little more salt and black pepper as to your preference, then add your thinly sliced basil as to your preference, Enjoy!
