the Ingredients

Roasted Tomatoes Stuffed With Ratatouille
  • 4 large, ripe tomatoes
  • Salt

For the stuffing

  • 1 medium red onion, cut crosswise into 10mm slices
  • 1 medium red capsicum, stem and seeds removed, cut into flat pieces
  • 1 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise in 10mm slices
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  • Prepare the barbecue for direct cooking over high heat (180° to 230°C).
  • Cut a 10mm slice off the top of each tomato. Discard the tops. With a small knife cut around the inside of the fleshy part of the tomato (do not cut through the bottom) to within 10mm of the skin.
  • With a teaspoon, scoop out the tomato flesh. Discard the juice and seeds to make room for the stuffing. Lightly salt the inside of the tomatoes and place them, cut side down, on a plate lined with paper towel.
  • To make the stuffing, lightly brush or spray the onion, capsicum, and zucchini with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook on a hotplate over direct high heat until tender, 4 to 5 minutes on each side for the onions and 3 to 4 minutes on each side for the capsicum and zucchini. Transfer the cooked vegetables to a cutting board and chop them into 10mm pieces. In a bowl combine the cooked vegetables with the cheese, basil, and vinegar to create the vegetable stuffing.
