  • Roast until tomatoes begin to collapse, brushing occasionally with pan juices, about 90 minutes. This can be made ahead and reheated in the oven at 325 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes

Quick Ideas for Slow-Roasted Tomatoes: Toss with white beans and fresh rosemary, and sprinkle with salt and pepper for a side; use in place of raw tomatoes in homemade salsa for deep flavor; mix with capers and serve on top of roasted fish, such as cod or halibut; add to a sandwich with turkey breast and black olive tapenade.

We love this recipe! It’s easy to make and the tomatoes once slow roasted, taste like candy but are a great side dish. We made the recipe last night and my wife loved it so much, she asked me to make it again today!

These are awesome! I even put a little shredded parmesan on them the last few minutes. I've made them three times now and love them! Make way more than three tomatoes at a time. I fill a whole rimmed cookie sheet. They are wonderful leftover!

Okay, I roasted them in the toaster oven, and they were AWESOME!!! I didn't have anything else to put in the oven with them, like Caroline suggested, but wanted to save energy, so it worked perfectly. Just thought you'd like to know.

I guess this may depend on the type of oven you have but how about putting another dish in the oven alongside this one to conserve both time and energy?

For the previous contributor: make a large quantity and freeze them. Then you won't feel so guilty, that's what I do anyway.

Oven roasted tomatoes are delicious, but this is an terrible waste of energy to bake such a small portion for an hour and a half. We all must be more conscious of our wasteful energy habits.

this sounds like a great side dish with nice mild seasoning, that can be put together easily and put away in the oven to bake while the rest of the meal is prepared.
