Herb Crusted Caprese baked tomatoes

Servings: 6 (depending on the tomato size)

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella
  • fresh basil, for garnish (optional)
METHOD
  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Slice tomato into thin, equally sized slices.
  2. Place dry oats in a small non-stick skillet and toast over medium heat until slightly browned (about 3 minutes). *Watch the oats carefully so they don’t burn.*
  3. Once cooled, place oats in food processor with dried basil and oregano and grind into a crumb-like texture.
  4. Top each tomato slice with oat mixture and cheese. Bake in oven for 7-8 minutes. Place under the broiler for an additional 3 minutes or until cheese lightly browns. Top with fresh basil if using and serve warm.
