More importantly If you lose patience, you can stop at just about any point on your journey towards roasting your tomatoes and you’ll still have something delicious…..right?
First, just grab a couple of your favorite tomatoes slice them up and carefully place the slice in a bowl
Gently toss with olive oil, salt, pepper and a garlic, and carefully place on a baking sheet in a single layer (I used a small pair of tongs to toss and arrange the slices)
Now if a couple of the more fragile tomato slices fall apart while still in the bowl, all the better. Another pre-snack snack!!! But note, the raw garlic will provide a bit of a kick (personally, I like that and was tempted to eat all the tomatoes then an there)
Bake at 375 for 20 minutes and enjoy on top of some yummy multi-grain, with a bit of parm and maybe even a bit of fresh basil (I didn’t have any basil, but I though it sounded like a good idea)
Adapted from The Novice Chef
3 Medium sized Tomatoes, sliced
1.5 Table spoon of olive oil
3-4 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
1 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
Gently combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl
Carefully arrange tomato slices onto a baking sheet in a single layer.
(You may want to set aside the oil, garlic and tomato juices that remain in your bowl. It’s rather yummy when warmed and served over pasta, and needn’t go to waste.)
Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes.
Eat tomatoes alone, on toast, over pasta, or grilled chicken.
