"One of the most classic Persian accompaniments is the whole flame-roasted tomato. A staple served with every kebab, it’s simply made by placing a whole tomato on a charcoal grill and roasting until the skin is somewhat charred in parts and the soft flesh inside is bursting with juices. This dish is inspired by my love for the roasted tomato, but reimagined for indoor cooking. Served with labneh (which Persians serve with everything) and a little spice oil for adding depth and flavour, it really is a wonderful dish and perfect alongside roasted or barbecued meats and vegetables."
