How to Make GRILLED TOMATOES WITH BASIL PUREE

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut the tomatoes in half crosswise, brush with 1 tsp. olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Oil the grill with 1 tsp. oil and set for high heat.
  2. While the grill heats up, prepare the basil puree. Pulverize the garlic with the 1/4 cup oil in a blender. Then add the basil and a pinch of salt. Puree until smooth. The mixture should be thin enough that you can easily drizzle it over the tomatoes.
