Stuffed TomatoesO Meu Tempero
Tomatoes are wonderful when scooped out and used as "cups" for savory fillings. Here, the tomatoes are halved and then stuffed with breadcrumbs that are seasoned with garlic, oregano, and parsley and toasted in a little olive oil to deepen the flavors. When baked, the tomato halves soften just enough while still holding their shape and retaining their fresh taste. Serve as a first course for a summer dinner, or as a side dish for grilled meat, poultry, or fish.
