Roasted Herb Tomatoes

Roasted Herb Tomatoes

Fresh tomatoes are perfect roasted with a few fresh herbs. It's a simple, quick way to may a wonderful sandwich or even pizza topping! They are even delicous as a side dish!

What You'll Need Per Person:
1 Roma tomato, stem end cut off and sliced lengthwise
Extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Fresh rosemary leaves, removed from stem
Fresh thyme leaves, removed from stem

Thyme

Preheat oven to 400 F. (Note: I like to do this in the toaster oven, especially in the summer. It doesn't heat up the house!)

Place each tomato slice onto a baking sheet and brush lightly with olive oil. (Roughly a teaspoon or so per tomato. Not much at all. Just a light coating.) Sprinkle each tomato with sea salt, black pepper and the herbs. Bake for 8-10 minutes until tomatoes soften. Serve warm or chill in the fridge and use later.

Notes: You could use other herbs with this. Oregano, basil and/or parsley would make a nice addition. You could also add some finely chopped garlic. When the tomatoes are stored the liquid from them tends to pool. Just pour the liquid off before using. With a little avocado they make a wonderful sandwich. With a little Parmesan and Mozzarella you're got a perfect pizza topping!
