Slow Roasted Tomatoes with olive oil, garlic, sea salt and brown sugar are a delicious addition to many recipes. Toss with pasta, into a salad or spread on toast.
It’s that time of year to make my Slow Roasted Tomato recipe! I have used this recipe for any kind of tomato. This year I have an abundance of yellow cherry tomatoes and there is no way I’m wasting that delicious sweet ball of sunshine!
Yes! You can roast whole cherry tomatoes!
Slow Roasted Tomatoes with Cherry Tomatoes
My recipe is simple with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and a touch of brown sugar.
You can use any of your favorite spices. You really can’t go wrong!
We love growing our own tomatoes and sometimes can’t keep up with the small golden delicious variety. Some years we can harvest over 500 regular size tomatoes, which is when I’ll make my slow cooker tomato sauce and lots of my 5 min salsa.
Making BLTs or my Puff Pastry Tomato Pesto Tart are also seasonal favorites.
Making Slow Roasted Tomatoes are another way to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Use them in spaghetti sauce, pasta and soup recipes, or smear on a buttered hot garlic bread!

Which Tomatoes are Best for Roasting?
If there are rules to which variety of tomatoes are best for roasting, I pay no attention. I roast all varieties. Obviously sweeter tomatoes will bring you more flavor, but I find so many uses, it never really makes much of a difference. Roasting gives me the opportunity to use of my bounty without any waste.
