How to Make Roasted Tomatoes

Dave Beaulieu January 2nd, 2011

Oven roasting is a great way to evaporate water and concentrate flavors. It can add depth and complexity to an otherwise simple ingredient, and vegetables offer great opportunities to experiment.  In this cooking video, I show you a technique I use to make oven roasted tomatoes - which end up being similar to sundried tomatoes.  The process is very simple.  I'll use these roasted tomatoes in sauces, vinaigrette s, as a garnish, or even by themselves with a bit of cheese and cracker.  It’s also a really great technique to use when they are not in season, and the tomatoes need a bit of help in the flavor department.

To Make Roasted Tomatoes:

  • Clean and deseed the tomato, by removing the top and bottom, cutting it in half and pulling out the seeds
  • Place the halves with the exposed side facing up in a baking dish
  • Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper
  • Place in a 250 – 300 degree oven for 45 minutes to an hour, or more importantly, until the tomatoes have broken down and much of the water has evaporated out
  • Let cool, and use as desired

These tomatoes make a great vinaigrette when blended with some olive oil and vinegar, or can be use to make tomato sauce, or flavor other dishes.

Enjoy!!
