Slow Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes

Tis the season for heirloom tomatoes! They were a plenty at my farmer's market a few weeks ago so I picked up a couple and decided to try my hand at slow roasting them. Slow roasting is super easy, but is time intensive.

  • Heirloom tomatoes
  • Coarse sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Herbs of your choice like rosemary or thyme
  • Olive oil
How to make this dish
Preheat the oven to 250-degrees. Cut the heirloom tomatoes in half and place them on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil onto them and top with sea salt (I used spicy sea salt that I picked up in Hawaii), freshly ground black pepper and any herbs. I like rosemary.

Place them in the oven and cook for 5 hours!  The longer, the more flavorful, I promise! Once cooked, they will taste amazing. You can use them for pasta sauces, salsa or just eat them by themselves like I did! Yum!
