OVEN ROASTED TOMATOES

Oven roasted tomatoes are such a great add to so many dishes…pasta, salad, pasta salad, sandwiches, bruschetta, hummus, pizza, risotto, paella…I could go on and on. ¬†I hadn’t made any myself for a long time until I bought Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook, My Father’s Daughter¬†(I am also a big fan of her blog GOOP).

I forgot how much I loved oven roasted tomatoes until I was flipping through the pages and saw a picture of them in her book. ¬†In the summer my garden always runneth over with tomatoes and I plan on roasting and freezing a ton of them to get me through the winter when grocery store tomatoes just don’t cut it for me; they are so bland and blah. ¬†Once you have grown your own tomatoes and picked them at the height of freshness you will never enjoy a grocery store tomato again…you may still eat them, but you won’t “enjoy” them. ¬†Roasting the vine ripened tomatoes brings an already amazing tomato into the¬†stratosphere.

Again…another VERY simple recipe…

INGREDIENTS

Organic tomatoes (grape, cherry, beefsteak, heirloom, any variety)

Organic olive oil

Himalayan or Celtic Sea Salt

Pepper

~

Preheat the oven to 275¬į

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Slice the tomatoes in half and place them in a bowl.

Lightly drizzle the tomatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Toss gently to coat.

Place the tomatoes skin side down on the baking pan.

Bake for 3-6 hours (depending upon the size of the tomatoes).  When they take on the appearance similar to that of a sun dried tomato they are done.
