Easy Roasted Plum Tomatoes

Print Friendly and PDF

Plum tomatoes are your best choice for oven roasting as they have thicker flesh than typical round tomatoes and hold up better during the roasting process. This recipe is so easy, you'll be roasting tomatoes in no time. Great for topping pizza, focaccia or just serving them plain for a colorful side dish.

Roasted Plum Tomatoes

4 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
Fresh thyme sprigs
salt and freshly ground pepper to season
extra virgin olive to drizzle

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Place tomatoes on lined pan cut side up. Lay the thyme sprigs around the tops of the tomatoes and tuck additional thyme sprigs in spaces between the cut tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. Place in oven and bake for about 45 minutes.
Serves 4.

I did this late last summer with the last of my garden grown Romas and loved it. Enjoy them!
