I'd prefer a grilled tom any day over a beef burger. From Culinary Tour magazine. My rendition of this recipe is to serve the grilled toms on whole wheat or multi-grain buns, if you wish. Omit the anchovy paste for vegetarian version.

Directions

  1. CREME FRAICHE: Combine the sour cream, buttermilk, Dijon mustard, (anchovy paste,) lemon juice, salt, pepper, and cayenne in a small bowl. Blend well.
  2. Place the herbs in a cup and snip with scissors. Stir the snipped herbs into the sour cream mixture and let stand 10 minutes.
  3. TOMATOES; Drizzle the cut up tomato halves with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper.
  4. Grill the tomatoes, cut side down until they are softened and slightly charred, approximately 8-10 minutes. Alternately, the tomatoes can be broiled. Watch oven carefully!
  5. Finally, remove tomatoes from grill and place on warm bun topped with a dollop of the creme fraiche.
