I am a huge fan of tartar but I have many friends who are vegetarian, so I decided to do a play on tartar for them and came up with this amazing recipe.
prep time10 Min
cook time1 Hr
cilantro, finely minced
shallots, finely minced
white balsamic vinegar
red balsamic vinegar
oil, herb infused
tri-wedge fresh mozzarella, gouda or brie
basil leaf, (deep fried optional)
How To Make
Heat oven to 200
Place cilantro, shallots, and white balsamic in a bowl. Mix well and place in refrigerator
Cut the tops off the tomatoes, and remove the seeds.
Place them on a baking rack. Add a touch of olive oil to the top.
Then spread the thyme evenly over all the tomatoes.
Place in the oven and roast for 45-60 minutes
Tomato should be very soft, but still be able to hold its shape.
While the tomatoes are cooking place the red balsamic in a pot and reduce down to a thick sauce. Once it is reduced place it in the refrigerator and cool.
Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.
Carefully remove the skin and dice the tomato into ¼” cubes.
Place in a bowl and chill for an hour
Drain the cilantro mix and add the tomatoes. Try to drain as much liquid as possible.
Place a cylindrical mold on a plate and place the tomato tartar inside.
Add the reduced balsamic and herb infused oil on the plate.
Garnish with a cheese wedge and a basil leaf.
