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.
