Can you roast tomatoes ahead of time?

I like to serve these tomatoes when they are still warm, but you can also enjoy them cold. Let them cool and kepp them in an airtight container in the fridge. They will keep well for up to 5 days and added to salads cold or gently reheated in the oven.

What are the best tomatoes to use?

I like to use cherry tomatoes on the vine, but you can also use tomatoes off the vine. Using loose cherry tomatoes or glory tomatoes will work just as well and the recipe remains the same.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Use ripe tomatoes for the sweetest flavors.
  • Roast the tomatoes in a pre-heated oven so that they cook evenly.
  • The tomatoes will be very hot inside, so let them sit for a few minutes before serving.
