Recipe: Grilled tomatoes

Seeing that I've been fasting for what seems like a decade but actually was a month, I was getting tired of the usual veggie food. I mean there's only so much pizza, pasta and cheese toast you can eat. So I decided to get creative in the kitchen, I wanted something simple yet filling but doesn't take a lot of time to make. I know the title reads "grilled" but it actually is pan fried.Its sort of a bruschetta but can be eaten as a light meal too. Here's how to make it.

  • 2 large, red, firm tomatoes
  • bread of your choice
  • 2 table spoons olive oil
  • cream/ cottage cheese
  • dried Italian herbs
  • garlic flakes
  • crushed black pepper
  • spring onion


Begin by slicing your tomato, you'd want a nice thick slice so that it still maintains its shape when frying. In a frying pan, add your olive oil. Wait for the oil to heat up before placing your tomatoes in, once in sprinkle your dry spices and herbs. For a bit of kick, you can sprinkle a chilli power. Cook the tomato for about 2/3 minutes on either side. While this is being done, slice your bread also keep it a little thicker than usual. You can either pop it in the toaster or the oven, just for a short while to crispen it, we don't want it hard in texture. Spread a generous amount of you cream/ cottage cheese on the bread then place your fried slices of tomatoes on top. Garnish with the chopped spring onion and you're ready to eat!
