Simply Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

3 WWPP Posted by 7 years ago 11 Comments

I was making the toddler’s lunch when I realized I had a pint of cherry tomatoes that were getting a bit overripe. I don’t know about you, but I can’t eat cherry tomatoes once they get all “wrinkly”. For some reason, they gross me out! So I decided to make a little evening snack.

Boy am I glad I did. So simple, yet SO delicious. Plus you get a healthy oil in paired with tomatoes which is said to be a powerful combo!Simply Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

  • 1 tsp olive oil (5g)
  • 1 pint cherry/grape tomatoes
  • Kosher Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Basil or Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp Parmesan Cheese (5g)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

In a small roasting or pyrex dish add the oil and swirl around a bit. Add the tomatoes and toss to coat. Sprinkle with spices and cheese.

Roast for about 18 minutes shaking once.

Transfer to a bowl making sure to get all the toasted spices and cheese. Allow to cool for a few minutes.

    I love that that is such a HUGE serving for only 2 points. Reply

    I do this but halve the tomatoes (of any size!) and set them in the dish cut side up so that the cheese/toppings stay on top better. I love tomatoes like this:) Reply

    This is a GREAT idea for leftover cherry tomatoes. I usually end up with a bunch that go wrinkly. :) Thanks! Reply

    Yum...these look and sound good. I guess I'll be picking up some cherry or grape tomatoes tonight too! Reply

    I bet it tastes sorta like pizza! I also cannot eat wrinkly tomatoes. I don't really dig tomatoes cooked, but these look good enough to make me give them a try. You've changed my mind on so many things I used to say "yuck" to...this just might be another. Thanks, Roni. Reply

    What a great idea! I can't tell you how many tomatoes I have thrown away because they get wrinkly. You know what? These would be AWESOME cut up on a pizza!!! Reply

    Aloha Roni.....found you on CNN and have been excited to start shedding the pounds! I had some grape tomoatos in the fridge already and decided to try this first! At the end of the 18 minutes tho, my poor tomotaos turned to mush and the juice filled the bottom of the bowl. Any reason why this happened? They still had the flavor but Im not much of a mush tomoato person. Suggestions? Mahalo for now, Alani Reply

    Keep an eye on them and pull them out earlier next time? Maybe your oven runs hotter then mine?? Not sure. Reply
