Tomato season is in full swing. So let's make the most of it. :)

Tomatoes with Goat Cheese and Thyme

Adapted from Tender Vol.I by Nigel Slater


4 large tomatoes
olive oil
thyme, 4-5 sprigs if using fresh thyme or 2-3 tsp dried
2 small goat's cheese


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cut off the top ends of the tomatoes and spoon out the seeds. Place the tomatoes in an oven-proof dish. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and the thyme leaves and drizzle some olive oil into each tomato. Bake for about 25 minutes until soft. Cut the cheese in half and into a shape which will fit into the tomatoes. Place the cheese inside the tomatoes, maybe add a little more olive oil and bake for about 10 minutes until the cheese has melted.

I agree! Just got a beautiful basket of heirloom tomatoes this morning at the farm. I love these simple, summery recipes.
