Makes 5 Prep: 10 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Tomatoes (medium) 5
Onion 1/4
Tinned tuna (in sunflower oil) 1 (60g)
Basil leaves 5
Breadcrumbs 1-1.5 tbsp
Salt & pepper as required
Olive oil 1 tbsp

Method

1
Slice the tops off the tomatoes and hollow out the inside using a spoon. Keep both parts aside. Be careful not to pierce through the sides of the tomatoes.
2
Finely chop the hollowed out part and the onion and add the tuna, breadcrumbs, olive oil and ripped basil. Mix well.
3
Season liberally with salt & pepper and mix well. Fill into the tomatoes. Try to get some basil leaves on top for good presentation.
4
Put the tomato lids on top and place in a preheated oven 180C for 10 minutes.
5
Garnish with whole basil leaves before serving.

Tips & Note

Choose slightly softer riper tomatoes otherwise hollowing out and roasting hard young tomatoes will be a bit difficult.
