Herb Roasted Tomatoes

These savory, umami-rich roasted tomatoes are delicious on their own, on toast, pasta or as a side to any summery dish.

Herb Roasted Tomatoes

Herb roasted tomatoes are deeply savory and full of umami flavor. They make a delicious side dish for summer BBQs and picnics, toast topper at breakfast, or snack all on their own.

Who doesn't love the start of tomato season? As soon as local heirloom tomatoes come in at the grocery store and farmer's market, I'm making Vegan Tomato Avocado Bruschetta and Onion, Spinach, Tomato, + Parmesan Quiche.

But for all of the other meals, when you just want to add a touch of tomato flavor, these herb roasted tomatoes are my go-to. They're easy to make and mostly hands-off, but the flavor is out of this world good. This is a simple recipe you'll want to return to all summer long.

How to Make Herb Roasted Tomatoes

The key for this recipe is to start with great-quality tomatoes. Choose a mix of large and cherries, and several different colors if you can find them.

  • Tomatoes. You can add as many tomatoes as will fit on your baking sheet.  
  • Olive oil. Don't skimp on the oil! It helps concentrate the tomato flavor and makes a nice jammy texture. You can use these roasted tomatoes like a dressing or sauce. 
  • Dried herbs. I like a mixture of Italian herbs like oregano, basil and parsley. But you can mix up the seasonings with other fresh or dried herbs. Thyme, rosemary, marjoram and tarragon are all delicious with tomatoes. 
  • Spices. Likewise, feel free to play with different spices in your roasted tomatoes. I like paprika, garlic powder and a pinch of red pepper flakes for a slight kick.
