These simple, fresh, and gorgeous roasted tomatoes are my favorite new side dish – and they are about to be yours.
We’re roasting tomatoes with just a bit of seasoning and olive oil for under 20 minutes, and topping them with plenty of parmesan and basil to pack a flavorful punch.
If you love rich tomato and garlic flavor, this super simple side dish is going to be your favorite.
I like to eat them with big meaty dinners – or over a simple salad, and even veggie noodles for a quick lunch.
The best part of this recipe? The smell from this side dish is amazing – your whole house fills up with garlic, basil and tomato and it is to die for!
- Serve with steaks, pork, chicken, vegetarian meals, or Italian food – this dinner is super versatile!
- Easy to clean – almost no mess!
- Vegetarian and can be made vegan (using vegan parmesan, or skip the cheese).
- Tons of flavor – without any grains or gluten, or extra additives!
- Even picky eaters love this dish – and tomatoes are good for you, so you can feel good about serving it to your family!
Opt for smaller tomatoes for the best results – but any tomatoes will work for this recipe, though it will impact cook time.
We based our cooking time on small, on the vine hydroponic campari tomatoes.
If you choose a larger beefsteak tomato, plan on 30-40 minutes to get a softer tomato. For cherry tomatoes, plan on 10-15 minutes.
Roasted tomatoes are done when they are soft and fragrant – but it is somewhat up to your taste. I like them with a bit of give, some people like them completely soft.
Roasted tomatoes can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days.
This side dish is great because the simple, clean flavors go with pretty much everything!
