Roasted Herb Tomatoes | A Delight


Ever since our Goa trip few years ago, I’ve been in love with roasted tomatoes. I ate them plenty almost daily for a week then. I have been looking for a simple recipe to re-create the magic. Finally my search ended and here is the recipe.


The only downside is unavailability of fresh herbs so I used dried. This is one of the simplest & tastiest recipes one can cook up. I will be making this often now.


The firm tomato loosing it’s shape was also a very fascinating watch. I’m sure you would agree with whatever photography I have managed. 🙂

  1. Oh la la! Those tomatoes look absolutely divine!
    As luck would have it, I have a batch of cherry tomatoes in my fridge right now. I am surely going to make this tomorrow. 🙂 Thanks again!

  2. So simple, yet so delicious. I love cherry tomatoes, because their taste is more concentrated, or so It seems to me 🙂 Tomatoes + herbs, wonderful combination!
