  • 1 1/2 pounds ripe cherry tomatoes
  • 1 to 2 dried chiles de árbol stemmed, thinly sliced
  • 3 to 4 shallots about 1/2 pound, outer layer peeled, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

To Prepare

  • Set the rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 400°F.
  • On a small baking sheet, combine the tomatoes, chiles de árbol, shallots, garlic, oil, salt and pepper and toss to combine.
  • Place in the oven and roast for 45 to 50 minutes, until tomatoes have completely softened and almost fallen apart and are charred on the outside.
  • The roasted tomatoes can be used on avocado toast, pasta, grilled asparagus, an egg scramble or a cheese omelet.
  • Note: It is important that the tomatoes be ripe for full flavor. If they seem hard or a bit unripe, leave them in a bowl on your countertop for a few days so they can continue ripening until fully colored and softened.

    My husband and I have become addicted to these tomatoes! On top of everything or as a side for steak, sandwiches, burgers, anything. Absolutely love ♥️ them. Great, easy recipe so we can always keep some

    Your recipe looks yummy and I will give it a try. It is similar to the roasted cherry tomato recipe I use for pasta. I put a basket of cherry tomatoes in a hot frypan with olive oil, stir, salt and pepper and turn heat to low and cook for about 30 minutes. Mash tomatoes and stir in about 1/2 cup (actually I use a glop full!)of plain Greek yogurt or label and add cooked pasta. Obviously a lot of other seasonings could be added but the basic recipe is great for me as a single person
