Bored of the usual broccoli and sweet potato side at dinner? Feel like getting a lil fancy with your food, minus all the effort? We feel you

Enter: Kumato Provencale. Trust us, this classic French dish is easier to make than it sounds!

Bursting with goodness, Kumatos (a natural crossing of a wild and domestic tomato) are low in acid and boast high levels of Vitamin C, A, Iron, calcium and lycopene, making them the ultimate healthy side:

Kumato Provencale Recipe

SERVES 6-8 | PREP 15 | COOK 15


1kg Kumato tomatoes
¼ tsp caster sugar
3 tbs olive oil
1 ½ cups breadcrumbs, made from Italian bread
1 garlic cloves, crushed
3 tbs roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 large lemon, rind finely grated


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a baking dish. Cut the Kumatoes in half and place the cut side up in the dish.
  2. Sprinkle over the sugar and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Roast for 8 minutes or until just tender but holding their shape.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat until hot. Add the remaining oil then the garlic and breadcrumbs, cook, shaking the pan for 4-5 minutes or until the breadcrumbs are golden. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon rind and parsley. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Scatter the lemon and garlic crumbs over the Kumatoes and serve.
