Oh, look at these beauties!! I have never been a huge tomato fan. I love tomato sauce but the mealy store bought tomatoes ruined me for the fresh version. I do like the sweet mini cherry tomatoes. And when I saw that Greenling carried mini heirloom tomatoes, I knew I had to oven roast them to save for snacking and special dishes to come. If you have a favorite herb like oregano, basil, or rosemary, feel free to add them. I actually forgot to add some whole garlic cloves to the mix which make an awesome addition to the oven roasted flavor. But I like to add the seasonings later on so my base oven roasted version are versatile and can be used in a variety of recipes. Remember to also use the olive oil used to store the tomatoes as it becomes infused with the delicious flavors. Bonus!
1 Pint Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes
1/3 Cup Olive Oil (plus more for storage)
1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
Preheat oven to 250°. Cut tomatoes in half. Toss with olive oil and spread on baking sheet lined with parchment paper in a single layer. Sprinkle with salt. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Turn oven off and leave baking sheet in oven until in cools, for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Place tomatoes and juices in container and add enough olive oil to almost cover. Store covered in refrigerator.
