This week I have a little bonus recipe for you: super-simple slow-roasted tomatoes. The title says it all… super simple. It is a bit ridiculous that I’m putting it up on the blog, given how simple it is. But it would be criminal not to share it because it’s so darn good.
So I will keep this one short and sweet, just like the recipe, and explain how I’ve indulged in these slow-roasted tomatoes in the past.
The options are endless BUT, here are some of my favourites:
+ As-is – they are so flavorful – I will often roast these up and have them as a side dish with my meal.
+ Cracker, Boursin, tomatoes… enough said.
+ This one is delicious… mix equal parts cream cheese and goat cheese. Place the tomatoes in a smaller-sized oven-safe dish and add the cheese mixture over the top. Broil in the oven for 3 minutes.
That’s a wrap! My top three fave ways to enjoy these slow-roasted tomatoes. I would love to hear how you serve these up if you do it in a different way!

1. Preheat oven to 250°F.
2. In a cast-iron pan, toss tomatoes and garlic in olive oil, balsamic, salt, and pepper.
3. Cook tomatoes and garlic in a cast iron pan for 3.5 hours or until tomatoes are shrivelled, and the garlic aroma is filling the room.
4. Add fresh basil if you want and serve with Boursin (or any cheese!) and crackers or indulge as is!
