This was perfect for a light dinner! Served it with pita, but it would have been great with Iranian barbari(like Turkish bread).I'll make this again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thoroughly mix the garlic with the pepper, salt, and hot pepper; then stir in the parsley and set aside.
  2. Heat half the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the slices from 1 tomato to the pan and cook for 1 minute. Turn over and sprinkle the slices with the garlic mixture.
  3. Continue to cook for another minute, shaking the pan occasionally; then turn the slices over again and cook until they are done, but not mushy.
  4. Slide the tomato slices onto a plate then repeat with the rest of the oil & tomato slices. Serve immediately after cooking.
  5. Note: Do not try to cook more than two servings at a time or the tomatoes will end up overcooked.
