I’m getting to the point where I don’t want to pay for things I can make, and you should too! Sun blushed tomatoes are the simplest things to make, and taste super yummy when fresh from the oven. Throw it in a salad, or a simple pasta dish; with just these tomatoes, some garlic and a drizzle of oil and you have a fresh, summer pasta dish! You can even preserve it in a jar filled with oil like the ones you’d buy – and you’re saving a bucketload.
- As many tomatoes as you want, any type (this time I used cherry tomatoes)
- Olive oil
- Sea salt
- Garlic cloves, crushed (optional)
- Dried herbs (optional)
I haven’t included quantities as it obviously depends on how many tomatoes you intend on making.
Preheat your oven to it’s lowest setting (mine was 80 C). Halve your tomatoes and scatter face up on a baking sheet. Drizzle over olive oil (each tomato should have a bit of oil on it), the salt and garlic if using. Place in the oven and leave to bake for 40 minutes to an hour, shaking the tray occasionally to re-coat the tomatoes in oil (or add a bit more!).
And there you have it – told you it was simple!
