Serves 4

Ingredients

4 large tomatoes

1 cup cooked rice

1 tablespoon pesto (optional)

4 eggs

Method

  1. Cut the top from each tomato, then remove the centre until completely hollow. Allow the tomatoes to drain on a paper towel for a few minutes, then sprinkle with some salt for a sweet and sour taste.
  2. Preheat your oven to 180ºC, and in the meantime scoop in some cooked rice into each tomato – this creates a fluffy body for the egg once it’s been cooked. Top-off with pesto (optional), and place the tomatoes onto a lined baking tray.
  3. Break an egg into the top of each tomato, then bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Season with pepper, and serve immediately.
