Roasted Tomatoes

Roasting tomatoes brings out their sweetness.  They become soft and caramelized and are great for a side dish, a topping, or just a snack.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 8-10 minutes

Serving Size: 2


2 small tomatoes or 1 large tomato

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

½ teaspoon dried basil

Fine sea salt


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Drizzle olive oil on a baking sheet.

Slice the tomatoes crosswise into about ¼ inch thick slices.

Spread out in a single layer on the oil lined baking pan.  Drizzle with more olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and dried basil.

Roast in the oven for about 8-10 minutes, or until soft, wrinkly, and lightly browned.

Serve on top of pizza, pasta, along side eggs, or puree for a sauce.
