You will never go back to just plain cherry tomatoes after you try these.  They are great on pastas, bruschetta, cold rice salads or risottos, or a simple accompaniment to fish or chicken dishes.  Very easy to prepare, however they do require around an hour on a low setting in the oven.  But definitely worth the wait!

Ingredients

  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Freshly Ground Pepper
  • Dried Herbs, whichever you prefer, Italian or Herbes De Provence*
  • Garlic Pepper or Garlic Powder(optional)
  • Chilli Flakes (optional)
  • Light Brown Sugar

Method

Slice the tomatoes in half and place them cut side up on a baking paper lined pan.  Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle some salt and crush some pepper on top.  Place a little herbs on the tomatoes and sprinkle with a little garlic pepper or powder and chilli (these last two optional).  Finally sprinkle the tops with a little brown sugar.

Place the sheet in a preheated oven (140C) for about an hour.

* if you wish you can use fresh herbs instead of dried, sprinkled after the tomatoes are finished roasting.
