AuthoradminCategory, , , , , , , , CuisineCooking MethodDifficultyBeginner

I have been wanting to post this tomato recipe forever! Believe it or not these photos were taken late last summer.

Then fall hit, life sped ahead and heirloom tomatoes were no longer in season. Now however they are back in full force. These tomatoes are baked not fried, but are reminiscent of really good comfort food.

Roasting the tomatoes with almond meal makes these perfect for salad toppers ~ also great as a hearty, healthy side dish. Perfect for folks on a grain free, Paleo diet.

Dip both sides of the tomato slices in the flour mixture. Place tomatoes on a lined cookie sheet in a single layer. Spray with some olive oil.
