Garlic Roasted Cherry Tomatoes*


I know that I missed tomato season and it’s now November, but you will have to excuse me. I was writing a book and buried under piles of donuts. I did not see a vegetable all summer long. So once I crawled out of my sugar cave, all I wanted was easy savory dinners. In walks — or maybe I should say in rolls — my favorite easy roasted tomatoes.

Some people are into long and slow roasting. I like sundried tomatoes as much as the next person, but I don’t have 8 hours and an unlimited amount of patience. If it’s not coated in sugar or topped with a swirl of buttercream, you will usually only have my attention for about an hour max. Luckily, these Garlic Roasted Cherry Tomatoes take under 30 minutes. Much more appropriate time frame for people who get distracted by anything glittery, furry, or pink.

There are SO many uses for these little flavor bombs. I love them on top of homemade pizzas (with some goat cheese and spinach!!), in a light pasta with some fresh basil and fresh mozzarella balls or as a topping to some grilled chicken breasts. There are seriously no limits!

Garlic Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

Ingredients:

2 (10 oz) containers cherry tomatoes, halved
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a medium bowl, toss together tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. Transfer to a baking sheet and spread into an even layer.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until tomatoes are soft and very fragrant.

Eat immediately standing over the sink with a kitchen fork...or on top of your favorite pasta, pizza, or even grilled chicken breasts!

    I love anything roasted, and throw in some garlic, and it’s even more divine. Nice job on the photos. I love roasted tomatoes with pasta especially. :)

    Hello! How do you store them? And how long can you keep them? I need to use some tomatoes but I don’t have time to make a meal until this weekend :)

      They are best made right when you want to eat/use them. They really don’t store all that well!

    Gorgeous pics! I made these last night…2 tips: use tinfoil on your baking sheet for easier clean up, and place the tomatoes skin side down otherwise they tend to stick and disintegrate.

    Has anyone tried these with grape tomatoes?
    I grabbed tomatoes as the grocery store after seeing this recipe, realized I bought grape rather than cherry.
