I love the flavor of roasted tomatoes. Add in herbs, lavender, garlic and lemon, this dish is simply irresistible. It makes a great addition to breakfast, lunch or dinner. 


6 ripe tomatoes, about 3 inches in diameter
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs, preferably freshly cut
2 shallots, minced
1/4 cup basil, roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper, divided
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
2 tablespoons olive oil

3. In a bowl, combine the bread crumbs, shallots, basil, garlic, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and the Herbes de Provence.
4. Fill the tomatoes with the bread crumb mixture. Bake the tomatoes for 15 minutes, or until they're tender.
