Garlic Roasted Cherry Tomatoes



This is the second time I made this recipe. The first time I cooked them I left them in a little longer and they were  "well" done. I blamed it on the electric oven in Florida that I'm not use to. The excuse sounded good but I knew the next time I made this I was gonna keep on eye on them.

I know they don't look roasted but they came out perfect for me. 

Recipe adapted from The Novice Chef

Ingredients:

2  10 ounce containers cherry or grape tomatoes- cut in half

6 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon  salt
2 teaspoon  black pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F/ 190 C

I cut the cherry tomatoes using  Rachael Ray's Way

Once the tomatoes are cut toss in a medium size bowl with the olive oil, minced garlic and the salt and pepper.

Add the tomatoes to a baking sheet in a even layer and place in the 375 degree oven for 20- 25 minutes. 

You will know when they are done by the very fragrant aroma and boy do they smell good.

If you played around  with spices, you could easily make these to suit a Mexican dish, a Greek dish, a Middle-Eastern dish....

  1. Another YUM recipe for me to try. BTW, I made the pulled chicken yesterday, and it is great. I froze some and am giving Monica a container. The recipe makes so much. Anyway, I am going to make this tomato recipe also. I love the yellow cherry tomatoes, and when I get them, this is what I am going to do with them.

    1. I'm slowly getting use to cooking with electric in Florida. I prefer gas and there wasn't one house we looked at that had a gas oven.

      See you next Friday!
