Easy Herb Roasted Tomatoes Posted on 29 Jun 13:24 , 3 comments
With the garden producing a plethora of heirloom tomatoes this year, I am finding new and delicious ways to prepare and preserve my harvest.
Herb roasted tomatoes are an easy way to prep a large amount of tomatoes and they're so versatile! You can use these for soups, stew, sauces and salsa. Bonus, herb roasted tomatoes freeze well.
HERB ROASTED TOMATO RECIPE
2 pounds smaller tomatoes (I've used large ones too), halved or quartered
For this recipe I used San Marzano tomatoes and Speckled Roman tomatoes
Garlic - at least 5 to 8 cloves
sea salt and pepper
fresh thyme, stems removed
fresh oregano, stems removed
fresh rosemary, stem removed
1/2 teaspoon dry chili pepper flakes (optional)
olive oil (approx 4 tablespoons)
Preheat your oven to 450
Place the tomato halves in a mixing bowl.
Add garlic, salt, pepper, thyme, oregano, rosemary and pepper flakes.
Drizzle with olive oil
Toss to coat
Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet or pan. Spread the tomatoes so there's only 1 layer with flesh side up.
Roast for 30-35 minutes.
Remove from heat
From here, you can do what you'd like. Herb Roasted tomatoes can be served hot or even cool with goat cheese. Blend with heavy cream for a delicious tomato soup or freeze for later.
