Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

This year we had a bumper crop of Cherry tomatoes. And I only had one plant!! I ate them in salads. I ate them plain. I cooked them into pastas. And then....I roasted them. This for me, was what cherry tomatoes were meant to be.

I must have googled "too many cherry tomatoes" or something like that and that's how I first found out about their roasted goodness. And it was so simple too.

Just toss with a bit of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. And roast at 350 for 30-40 minutes. Your oven may be different so keep an eye on them. Roast them until they start to carmelize and dehydrate a bit (a little more than my photo.) I also threw some garlic on the pan, just because. And I used the roasted garlic to make tasty hummus and to add to pasta dishes.

Great idea! We had too many cherry tomatoes this year too. I've grown quite sick of them. I might try this recipe though. Something a little different.

I like your blog. Found you on Mom Bloggers Follower Group. I'm now following and looking forward to reading more.

Oh that is an awesome idea!! I've been roasting lots of excess veggies from our organic buying club (our coordinator REALLY loves kale... I prefer it in moderation... LOL). I've been making roasted kale chips, collard chips, even spinach chips. Roasted squash is so yummy, and I can't wait to try roasting our extra cherry tomatoes (the ones that have gotten a little too soft for salad).

Thanks for the tip, Angela :D

BTW, I've got another giveaway going!! 3 possible winners this time for some fabulous kids gifts/toys :)

We had a cherry tomato plant and a pear tomato plant, plus a big tomato plant, and I never got a "bumper-crop". With 4 girls who love to eat them right off the plants, I rarely got one to eat myself, which means they RARELY made it into the house! I'm not complaining, though. . .I'm glad they're eating healthy food! ;-)

Roasted tomatoes are the best especially with roasting the garlic. I've been doing this for about a year now. I would love your roasted garlic hummus recipe. By the way love your blog.
