Ripe cherry tomatoes from the garden become spreadable when roasted.
Take tomatoes on the vine, coat with olive oil, and place in an ovenproof dish in the oven at 375 degrees. Roast 8 to 10 minutes, until skins begin to pucker. While tomatoes are roasting, toast peasant bread rubbed with garlic and drizzled with olive oil. With a butter knife, split the warm tomatoes and smear onto the peasant bread, and season with salt and pepper.
