Roasted Tomatoes

Roasting tomatoes in this manner caramelizes them, enriching their flavor. These tomatoes can be used in sauces, soups, to top bruschetta or even on salads. Use fresh, ripe, flavorful tomatoes for the best results. You can use all red or a mixture of both red and yellow tomatoes, and plum tomatoes and cherry tomatoes both work really well.

 
Why Healthy
