How to Make Roasted Tomatoes

Roasting tomatoes is an easy way to add some elegance to a meal, and it’s surprisingly easy to do! Start by mixing your seasonings. You’ll need garlic, salt, pepper, and some sugar to enhance the natural flavor of these bold Eclipse tomatoes. 

Once your seasonings are ready, slice the tomatoes into halves or quarters and place them on a sheet pan with the cut side facing upwards. Next, sprinkle them with the seasoning mix and top them off with a drizzle of olive oil and vinegar. It doesn’t matter what type of olive oil you use. 

Give the tomatoes about a half hour to cook. When they’re ready, they should be just beginning to caramelize. Pull them out of the oven and add them to your meal!
