This is the simplest recipe I have on my blog. Only 5 ingredients are needed to make these delicious Roasted Grape Tomatoes.
What to do with Oven-Roasted Tomatoes
The roasted tomatoes can be used as a topping for crostini. Toast slices of baguette, spread them with a bit of goat cheese (or cheese of your choosing) and top them with the roasted tomatoes. Top the crostini with a sprinkling of herbs. Basil, oregano or thyme would be delicious.
You can also use the roasted tomatoes as a base for a pasta sauce or to top a simple pasta dish. The most simple way to use them would be to serve them as a side dish, you can sprinkle a bit of feta or parmesan cheese on them to make them extra special.
How to Make it
This recipe for Roasted Grape Tomatoes is easy, quick and really versatile. Feel free to use cherry, grape, or plum tomatoes for this recipe, all will work just fine.
You can add herbs and or garlic to the tomatoes before roasting and if you don’t like balsamic vinegar you can leave it out. It’s quick to prepare and can be put in the oven while you cook the remainder of your meal.
To roast the tomatoes, start by pre-heating the oven to 425°F.
If using cherry or grape tomatoes simply leave them whole. For plum tomatoes, chop the tomatoes into large bite-sized chunks.
Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet, add olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Toss them well to make sure they are well coated and arrange them in a single layer on the baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes, stirring once after 10 minutes. Tomatoes are ready when they burst and become caramelized. Large chunks might take longer to roast, just keep an eye on them and remove them when caramelized.
This a great recipe to have on hand for any extra fresh tomatoes you need to use up. Don’t forget to freeze any leftovers to use in your next tomato sauce or soup.
