Baked Tomatoes with Sage

This is one of my absolute favourite go to recipes for a delicious supper that requires very little preparation. It’s full of flavour and goes perfectly as a side dish to compliment a simple cheeseboard and a couple of hunks of homemade or good quality bread.

You could also use it as a side to some lentil fritters, to top a naked bean burger or as a jacket potato topping.

If you can’t find mixed coloured tomatoes, simply use cherry tomatoes or a mixture of different small tomato varieties.
