Best Roasted Tomato Recipe Ever!

This is the time of year we seem to have an abundance of gorgeous, sweet, fresh-from-the-garden or Farmers Market tomatoes … and calendar full of BBQs. We loved this EZ recipe from the Hawaii Farmers Market Cookbook.

Maria Tucker from Aloha Gourmet suggests topping with fine bread crumbs or Parmesan cheese during the last five minutes of roasting. We served them as is -and they were a crowd pleaser!

Recipe:
8-10 Tomatoes
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme, basil, chevril or marjoram
1/2 teaspoon sea salt (of course Hawaiian sea salt is best)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black or white pepper

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Slice tomatoes in half, place in a bowl and toss with remaining ingredients. We didn’t have chevril or marjoram, just lots of fresh basil, Arrange a single layer with the cut sides up and bake about 30 minutes.  Serves 6.

Best part is they are sooo good for you – check out this breakdown from SELFnutritionaldata.com
