Roasted Grape Tomatoes


Roasted Grape Tomatoes is a quick and easy side dish. Roasting brings out a smoky sweet depth, which turns ordinary tomatoes into something special.

If you have never roasted tomatoes before, I encourage you to give it a try.

This recipe is so simple it hardly qualifies as a recipe. You only need six ingredients:


I used a carton of Trader Joe's organic grape tomatoes, but you could use cherry tomatoes too... whichever looks good that day.

Just spread the tomatoes onto a foil lined sheet and toss with the olive oil, salt and pepper to taste and pop in the oven for 20 minutes.


Finish with a drizzle of balsamic and some chopped fresh basil, and you’re done!


Roasted Grape Tomatoes are great on a salad, or even tossed with some garlicky shrimp or chicken and served over zoodles.

I had some last night, alongside a grilled steak and a caesar salad, yum!
