A tomato can be a thing of beauty, or an unripe, mealy catastrophe. While you're waiting for summer's bounty of heirlooms, enliven lackluster late-winter fruit with our Test Kitchen's recipe for roast herbed plum tomatoes. A blend of dried basil and oregano, grapeseed oil, and salt and pepper add flavor while roasting brings out the tomatoes' sweetness. Spread them on toast or use as a sandwich topping, or roughly chop them and toss with pasta. No matter how you slice them, they're a welcome breath of summer, far ahead of schedule.

Roast Herbed Tomatoes

Yield: Makes 24 halves (about 2 cups)


Cook Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

  • INGREDIENTS
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil

    ¼ teaspoon dried oregano

    ½ teaspoon kosher salt

    ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    1 tablespoon grapeseed oil

    12 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat the oven to 375°. To a small bowl, add the basil, oregano, salt and pepper and stir to combine.

2. Lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet with the grapeseed oil and place the tomatoes, cut side up, on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with the basil-oregano mixture and roast until the tomatoes are tender and shriveled, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Cool the tomatoes to room temperature and serve immediately, or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
