This 5 ingredient oven roasted balsamic tomatoes recipe is one that I promise you’re going to make on repeat. Plus, since they’re made with only 5 ingredients, they are a perfect for this weeks’ Five Ingredient Friday recipe!
Nick has been into roasting lately, and I’m loving it – low and slow! The first time Nick made these oven roasted tomatoes, I was so blown away by the flavor that I asked him to make them again…so he made them twice (in a day)!, He used this recipe and then tweaked it.
What ingredients do you use to make roasted tomatoes?
- Roma tomatoes and 1 pint cherry tomatoes – you could also use 4-6 regular sized tomatoes, cut in 1/2 or 1/4
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Aged balsamic vinegar – it makes a difference to use a good quality balsamic vinegar, like this
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Kosher salt
I’ve previously written about some delicious things to make with tomatoes, but this recipe is definitely getting added to that list (probably to the top!).
These balsamic roasted tomatoes can be used in so many ways – a few of my favorites are below:
- By themselves
- On toast (be sure to use a good bread!)
- With a cheese board
- As a topping for fish (see tomato poached fish!)
- Stirred in with some pasta or rice (and add a dash of parmesan, yum)
- Stirred in with mayo for a sandwich spread
- On tacos
It’s all about low and slow when you’re roasting these tomatoes. The initial roasting takes 90 minutes (so worth it!), and then you turn up the heat right at the end to give them a little color/flavor.
Once you pull this 5 ingredient oven roasted balsamic tomatoes recipe out of the oven, enjoy them in your favorite way and then get ready to make them again and again!
