Sweet and succulent broiled tomatoes take just a few minutes to make in the broiler of a full-size or countertop oven. They can be as simple as tomato halves drizzled with olive oil, salt, and pepper, or you can get fancier (though it takes hardly any more work) by tucking in a few slivers of garlic or a sprig of rosemary, or topping them with pesto or cheese such as Parmesan or feta. Vegetarian Times has a great vegan recipe with savory nutritional yeast. Make extra and you have excellent excellent sandwich toppings or omelet fillings for the next day.
