Most of the time I'm eating them off the plants while searching for cucumbers among their grow bags. But yesterday I decided to cook with them. This week I grabbed a mouthful of my bosses lunch off her desk....a salad with some slow roasted tomatoes in it. 100% delicious.
Slow Roasted Tomatoes........
About 20 cherry tomatoes
A drizzle of olive oil
1 small clove of garlic
Preheat the oven to 150'c. Place the tomatoes in a baking tray and drizzle with some olive oil. Put in the oven for 2 and a half hours.
This is what they will look like after an hour.
After 2 and a half hours the tomatoes will look like this....not dried out and chewy but soft and intensely tomatoey. Take out of the oven. In a pestle an mortar crush the garlic, herbs, seasoning with a little olive oil and pour over the tomatoes. On their own they are amazing with some toast or toss through warm pasta or a salad.
