Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Peppers, Tomatoes

 Ingredients List

  • 5 extra-large tomatoes (or an equivalent amount of smaller tomatoes)
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (see notes)


1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Wrap a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil, and lay a sheet of parchment paper on top.
3. Cut tomatoes into 3/4-inch slices. (I got about 3 slices out of each jumbo tomato. If using smaller tomatoes, like plum tomatoes, just cut them in half.) Remove all seeds and juices and poke a few holes in the bottom of any tomato end-pieces. Drain, cut side down, on a paper towel for a few minutes.
4. Arrange tomato slices on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle tomatoes with minced garlic and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar (I use a small spoon to sprinkle them so I don't end up dousing too much). Sprinkle tomatoes with sugar, salt, and freshly ground pepper, to taste. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes (check at 15 minutes the first time you make them) or until tomatoes are soft, dark, and caramelized. Sprinkle with chopped fresh herbs and serve hot or at room temperature.
