The tomato is a savory edible fruit. Originating in South America, the tomato was spread around the world following the Spanish colonization of Americas. There’s nothing like a delicious garden ripe tomato. But as time goes by, the tomatoes are not quite fresh enough to eat, just a little over ripe…. Don’t throw them away! Roast them in the oven! Slice them and place them on an olive oil coated sheet pan, I use parchment paper for easy removal of roasted tomatoes and easy clean up. Sprinkle with Sea Salt , Cracked Black Pepper and drizzle with good olive oil. You could also add some fresh chopped herbs and garlic. Roast the sliced tomatoes in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes, maybe longer.The tomatoes should be a bit darker in color and caramalized….We used roasted tomatoes in this dinner entree of Seared Pork Tenderloin Medallions with melted Fresh Mozzarella. The side Greek Salad is our attempt to avoid a starch with dinner, we’ll save that for another night. Roasted tomatoes are so flavorful, it’s hard not to eat them right off the pan! Let me know if you make oven roasted tomatoes and send a photo of your creation!
