Tomato Cobbler

Cobbler is a traditional dish in both the United States and United Kingdom. It can be with either fruit or meat filling with a batter on the top which while baking rises and forms a crust or so called biscuit. This time I chose a recipe from Martha Stewart Show - Tomato cobbler. I liked the idea of baked tomatoes and some crust. But I still felt I needed more flavour, so I added traditional tomato friends - basil. Though I reduced the amount of tomates and it wasn't a good thing to do as I would have prefered more juice. Still it is a great vagetarian dish!!!

What we need:

8-10 tomatoes

1 tbsp of cornstarch

salt and pepper to taste

some fresh or dry basil

1 cup flour

1 cup corn flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

100 gr of unsalted butter

1 egg

150 ml of milk or buttermilk

 What we have to do:

1. Cut tomatoes in quarters. Season with salt and pepper, and basil. Add cornstarch and mix it well.

2. Mix flour with cornflour, add butter, beaten egg, milk and baking powder. Mix it well.

3. Put tomatoes in a baking dish. With a spoon put the batter on the top. Leave some spaces to help the steam go out.

4. Preheat the oven 180C and bake for 50-60 min. Enjoy!!!
