Honey-Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

Jump to Recipe

Honey roasted cherry tomatoes make for a simple yet flexible dish.

When slow roasted, cherry tomatoes caramelize and become even sweeter than they are when raw. Here we serve them on farro salad with a sprinkle of goat cheese.  If you have a nice baguette handy you can serve honey roasted cherry tomato bruchetta to your guests. I’ve tossed them into angel hair pasta with pine nuts, fresh chopped basil and smoked turkey, cubed for a satisfying summer supper. They can also be served on top of a veggie salad to add a layer of flavor that will amaze and impress your guests.

Just fyi: tomatoes are packed full of beneficial nutrients and antioxidants rich source of vitamins A and C and folic acid, biotin, molybdenum, and vitamin K. They are also a very good source of copper, potassium, manganese, dietary fiber, vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), vitamin B6, folate, niacin, vitamin E, and phosphorus.

These honey-roasted tomatoes are wonderful hot or cold. Sweet and tangy. Enjoy.

Honey roasted cherry tomatoes add depth to salads and pasta dishes to enjoy for lunch or dinner and take only minutes to make.
