Grilling plum tomatoes gives them a smoky flavor -- ideal for use in many recipes, including our Grilled Tomato Linguine.
Heat grill to high. In a bowl, toss tomatoes with oil and thyme; season generously with salt and pepper.
Starting with cut sides down, grill tomatoes until soft and charred, 8 to 12 minutes per side.
Return to bowl; cut into rough pieces with kitchen shears.
