Better Roasted

I adore roasted tomatoes. Their color and taste deepen after baking and they can really hold their own in a dish. One of my favorite combinations is roasted tomatoes and goat cheese. With the addition of roasted onion, fresh chives, and soy sauce, the pair are taken to another level. The result is an elegant and downright delicious appetizer that suits every appetite. And, lycopene, an antioxidant found in tomatoes, is more readily absorbed when cooked!

    Roasted tomatoes and onions–delicious! I like to add some fresh thyme to my roasty tomatoes, and then put the finished product on crispy toast–sourdough for preference. I know what I’ll be making when tomato season finally rolls around…

    i find that true of so many vegetables! the roasting just concentrates and intensifies all the sweetness and flavours and it’s my no-fail way of cooking a vegetable I’m unsure of! like eileen, love it on sourdough with extra virgin olive oil drizzled over. with basil (:

    Beautiful photos! I love roasting just about any vegetable, but I’ve never tried tomatoes. This would be great served with some couscous or quinoa!

    This sounds delicious! I bet it would be really good with balsamic vinegar too :)
