Garlic Baked Tomatoes

3 tbsp Sweet butter
2 Garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp Finely grated orange rind
4 Firm plum tomatoes (or 2 lg)
Salt and pepper
Basil leaves to garnish

Soften the butter and blend with the crushed garlic, orange rind, and salt and pepper. Chill for a few minutes in the fridge.

Preheat the oven to 400 deg F. Halve the tomatoes crosswise and trim the bases so they will sit level. Place the tomatoes in an ovenproof dish and spread the butter equally over each tomato half.

Bake the tomatoes in the oven for 15-25 min, depending on the size of the tomato halves, until just tender. Garnish with basil and serve.
