Tips for Roasting Cherry or Grape Tomatoes

  • It’s better to halve the cherry and grape tomatoes, if you are planning to eat them hot out of the oven. Biting into a cherry tomato can send hot juices bursting out!
  • Using minced garlic will burn in the oven. You can use garlic powder, or throw on whole, peeled cloves onto the baking sheet. The garlic cloves will roast alongside the tomatoes. Then, just pop them out of the skin and give them a quick smash.
  • Using fresh herbs will dry in the oven – turning them a little bitter, but almost like a dried herb. Add the fresh herbs halfway through the roasting, or use dried herbs.
  • Wait until the tomatoes are roasted before seasoning with salt. Salt draws out water – and we want as much of the juiciness to stay in the tomatoes as possible.

Roasted Cherry Tomatoes in the Oven

Add fresh and flavorful oven roasted cherry tomatoes to any Buddha Bowl! Throw in any fresh herbs or even add in a few shakes of your favorite dried herb blend. Wait until the end to season with salt and pepper.
