Emily found an orange tomato at the Greenmarket this weekend and asked to buy it (just because it was orange!), and I wanted to find something to do with it that would preserve it's orangeness. Knowing she won't eat raw tomatoes, I looked through my books and cobbled a recipe together that resulted in this:


And it was delicious! She still wouldn't eat it though...but that's okay, more for us!

Here's what I did: slice up yummy tomato and lay out on a baking sheet. drizzle with olive oil (I used 1 T for one tomato), sprinkle with salt (I used kosher, any flake salt would be good), grind some pepper over the lot, and finally, grate piles of parmesan on each slice. (okay, actually, I use pecorino, but parmesan will work fine and most people have that instead). Broil 6" from broiler unit for 6 minutes. Transfer carefully to plates and then scarf down.


  1. I am soooo going to try this. Sounds easy and looks amazing!

  2. Broiled Orange Tomatoes?
    Attack of the Orange Tomatoes?
    The possibilities are endless.

  3. I do this all the time w/'maters. Delish. We have a ton from my MIL's garden and it's cool enough out to use the stove so maybe I'll do this for dinner tonight. Flynn won't touch them w/a 10-foot pole (raw tomatoes she loves, cooked not so much). Oh well, all the more for Evan and me.

  4. Oooo this sounds delish - and perfect for the abundant tomato harvest. I will try this out tonight - although ours might not be orange.
