Who doesn’t love oven roasted tomatoes? They are so sweet and pair perfectly with just about any meal. I love them on goat cheese salads, with polenta and basil, mixed with other veggies, on top of crostini, and as a base for tomato soup. They are an instant upgrade and can make any dish seem gourmet. Most of the time, it’s the simple dishes that are the most amazing.
cherry or grape tomatoes, halved (you can use any quantity you want, I used 1 pint of red grape tomatoes and 1/2 a pint of yellow cherry tomatoes)
whole garlic cloves with skin
herbs/spices (I used an assortment of dried Italian herbs and garnished with fresh herbs chopped very fine)
- Simply place the tomatoes (cut side up) and whole garlic cloves in a baking sheet over parchment paper. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and desired herbs/spices.
- Roast in the oven at 350 degrees for 30-45 mins or untilÂ shriveled. You can also use full size tomatoes, the method is exactly the same.
