About this recipe: An Italian inspired appetiser that's super-easy to make and tastes fab. Slices of tomatoes are drizzed with olive oil, sprinkled with Parmesan, oregano and garlic, before being grilled to perfection.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 tomatoes, cut into 5mm slices
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper or to taste
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 pinch monosodium glutamate (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 60g freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Preheat the grill. Cover a grill pan or baking tray with foil and coat with oil spray.
  2. Arrange tomato slices in a single layer on the prepared baking tray. Drizzle each slice lightly with olive oil, spreading oil evenly with finger if necessary. Season with salt, pepper, garlic, monosodium glutamate (if using) and oregano. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top.
  3. Grill 7.5cm from the heat until cheese is browned and bubbly, 3 minutes.


Monosodium glutamate is a flavour enhancer. If your local supermarket doesn't stock it, you can find it in Chinese/Oriental speciality stores or online.
