Looking for a low-carb snack or appetizer that will stack up against any of its breaded competitors? Enter: baked Parmesan tomatoes. Tender, cheesy, herbaceous, delectable. I couldn’t stop myself with these! They may as well have been my main course.

Oregano – Fresh or dried.
Salt & pepper – Season to taste.

Olive oil – Avocado, safflower, sunflower, grapeseed, canola, or vegetable oils can be used instead.
Parsley – Freshly chopped for garnish.

How to store leftovers
Keep the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days. You can honestly eat your leftovers cold if you’d like to avoid the reheating process! Tomatoes and cheese- two lovely, versatile ingredients delicious both hot and cold.

If you’d like to reheat them, you can do so in the microwave or the oven. Preheat the oven to 375F and bake for 5-7 minutes or until warmed through.

Can I freeze baked tomatoes?

Since this recipe is such a cinch to throw together, I don’t suggest freezing them in advance. The tomatoes, packed with water, will become quite deflated and mushy after being frozen and thawed. This recipe is best enjoyed fresh!
