Grilling plum tomatoes gives them a smoky flavor -- ideal for use in many recipes, including our Grilled Tomato Linguine.


  • 3 pounds plum tomatoes, cored and halved lengthwise

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • Salt and pepper


  1. Heat grill to high. In a bowl, toss tomatoes with oil and thyme; season generously with salt and pepper.

  2. Starting with cut sides down, grill tomatoes until soft and charred, 8 to 12 minutes per side.

  3. Return to bowl; cut into rough pieces with kitchen shears.
