Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

These are very simple to make and taste delicious. I plan to use them in a risotto recipe later today. They can also be used for salads and in all sorts of side dishes.

Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste

Toss your halved cherry tomatoes in a bowl with the olive oil, salt & pepper to coat. Lay them out on a parchment paper lined baking tray (or two if necessary) cut sides facing up. Place them in the oven at 250F for about 1.5 hours. They will have a slightly deeper red color, will be a little shriveled but still tender and juicy. The tomato flavor will be more concentrated and quite a bit sweeter from roasting. Here’s what they should look like:
