Provencal Tomatoes
6 ripe tomatoes (2 1/2 to 3-inches in diameter)
1/2 cups fresh white bread crumbs (5 slices, crusts removed)
1/4 cup minced scallions, white and green parts (2 scallions)
1/4 cup minced fresh basil leaves 2 tbsp minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoons minced garlic (2 cloves)
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
Salt and black pepper
1/2 cup grated Gruyere cheese
Olive oil
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut the cores from the tomatoes, removing as little as possible. Cut them in half crosswise and, with your fingers, remove the seeds and juice. Place the tomato halves in a baking dish.
In a bowl, combine the bread crumbs, scallions, basil, parsley, garlic, thyme, and 1 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle the tomato halves generously with salt and pepper.
With your hands, fill the cavities and cover the tops of the tomatoes with the bread crumb mixture. Bake the tomatoes for 15 minutes, or until they're tender.
Sprinkle with the cheese, drizzle with olive oil, and bake for 30 seconds more. Serve hot or at room temperature.
Crab Cakes
2cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled
2 red chillies, seeds removed 250g White crabmeat
1 tbsp roughly chopped fresh coriander
2 spring onions, finely sliced
2 free-range eggs
7-8 tbsp breadcrumbs Plain flour, for dusting
25ml olive oil
Few salad leaves
Olive oil, for drizzling
Salt and black pepper
Place the ginger and chilli into a mini food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
In a bowl combine the chilli and ginger with the white crabmeat, coriander and spring onions. Crack in one egg and mix well, then stir in 4 tablespoons of the breadcrumbs.
Divide the crab cake mixture into 6 equal portions and mould into patties. Place on a tray and chill in the fridge for about 20 minutes before cooking.
Preheat the oven to 180C/365F/Gas 4.
Beat the remaining egg in a small bowl with one tablespoon of water to make an eggwash. Place some plain flour and the remaining breadcrumbs in separate shallow dishes.
Dredge a crab cake in the flour, then dip into the egg and coat in the breadcrumbs. Shake gently to remove any excess breadcrumbs. Repeat with the remaining crab cakes.
Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and fry the crab cakes for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until crisp and golden-brown all over. Transfer the crab cakes to a baking tray and bake for 5-10 minutes, or until piping hot all the way through.
Serve the crab cakes with a mixed leaf salad, lightly dressed with olive oil, salt and freshly ground black pepper.
