Slow Roasted Farm Fresh Tomatoes

Slow Roasted Farm Fresh Tomatoes
Adapted from Chef Michael Smith Foodtv show Chef At Home

Printable Recipe

Prep time: 5 minutes
Roasting time:
45minutes or until soft and start to wrinkle

Makes ? (depends on the amount of tomatoes you cut up)

Tomatoes, cut in wedges (preferably fresh from the farm and ripe) – enough to fill a rimmed baking sheet)
olive oil (enough to drizzle over the tomatoes)
Salt & freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C

2. In a large bowl place the tomato wedges and toss with the olive oil, salt and pepper.

3. Spread the wedges evenly on a lined, rimmed baking sheet, and roast for at least 45 minutes or until soft and starting to caramelize . Toss about halfway through the roasting.

So many things to do with these sweet roasted beauties….coarsely dice and use in sauces instead of canned tomatoes, puree and make into a pizza or pasta sauce.

I have also been roasting fresh tomatoes, then freezing them in containers....wonderful for sauces during the winter.
