Whole Roasted Tomatoes
When you spot a good deal on plum tomatoes, buy a bunch. Roasting preserves them for later use and maximizes their sweetness.
Use roasted tomatoes in Roasted-Tomato Pasta with Basil, Beef and Tomato Stew, and Spiced Tomato Soup.
Everyday Food, April 2010
- 8 pounds plum tomatoes (about 45)
- 6 sprigs thyme
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Divide tomatoes and thyme between two shallow baking pans or rimmed baking sheets. Toss with oil; season with salt and pepper. Bake until tomatoes burst, 45 minutes, rotating pans halfway through. Let cool, then coarsely chop.
