Oven Roasted Tomatoes

You say tomato, I say tomato

What on earth can one do with all these tomatoes?  One of my favorite methods of cooking vegetables is roasting them.  It gives them a depth of flavor.  You can sprinkle them with goat cheese, feta, mozzarella etc, or serve them on a toasted baguette.  Anyway you slice it, these are delicious!

Oven Roasted Tomatoes

Serves 4 – 6

12 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise, cores and seeds removed
4 Tbs olive oil
1½ Tbs balsamic vinegar
2 large garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp sugar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Arrange the tomatoes on a sheet pan, cut sides up, in a single layer. Drizzle with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with the garlic, sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.

Roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the tomatoes are beginning to caramelize. Serve warm or at room temperature.
