Grilled Tomato Spinach StackerPosted: October 19, 2011
This summer we acquired a new barbecue, which we used pretty much every night and continue to use frequently into the fall. One of our favourite go-to side dishes, is the Grilled Tomato and Spinach Stacker. This recipe was inspired by something I saw on the Food Network and tweaked to make it my own. The other night we had it with grilled salmon (for me) and steak (for Todd), and a quinoa salad.
Spinach Tomato Stacker
- Large, not too ripe tomatoes
- drizzle of olive oil
- salt and pepper
- handful of spinach
- cup of finely grated cheese
Heat bbq on medium. Remove the top and bottom, so that the tomato sits evenly on a flat surface. Wash tomatoes and cut into 4-5 thick slices.Salt and pepper each slice and layer 3-4 leaves of spinach, with a tablespoon of cheese. Top with a tomato slice and repeat. Drizzle each tomato with olive oil and place on a small cookie sheet lined with tin foil. Place cookie sheet on the top rack of your BBQ and grill tomatoes for 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the tomato slices become soft.
