Luscious Roast Tomatoes
Ready in: 60 mins +
Allow these gorgeous tomatoes to cool completely before storing in an airtight container and refrigerating for up to two weeks
Ingredients:12 British midi plum tomatoes
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp soft brown sugar
freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5.
- Cut the tomatoes into quarters and place in a mixing bowl with the olive oil, sugar and a good grinding of rock salt and black pepper. Turn the tomatoes with a spoon to ensure that they are thoroughly coated with the oil and sugar.
- Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 1½-2 hours, turning from time to time.
- They are ready when reduced in size, deep red and just beginning to char. For a ‘sunblushed’ effect, remove the tomatoes from the oven a little earlier.
