How to Perfectly Roast Tomatoes

Roasting Tomatoes at Home has never been easier with this roasted tomatoes recipe. Just 3-Ingredients and you’ll have freshly roasted tomatoes in no time.

I was fed up with the numerous times I tried and could not find roasted tomatoes in my grocery store. I’ve been on the hunt for these tomatoes for at least a year. Every time I want to experiment with roasted tomatoes, I travel back and forth through every aisle possible. Nothing. (If they are there, those babies are extremely good at hiding.)

Well, fine. I’ll make them myself.

The 5 minutes it takes to slice the tomatoes, drizzle with olive oil, and toss on some herbs is way more cost efficient than the $5 jar I was looking for. I call this a win.

Especially as I find myself making excuses to make dishes with these easily roasted tomatoes so that I can keep eating them.

The flavor, oh my word, the flavor! Perfectly roasted to perfection with a sweet and tangy flavor that just bursts as you plop one in your mouth.

Add them to pasta with more olive oil and garlic. Add them to bruschetta, on a salad, with a cheese board. The possibilities are endless!
