Roasted Cherry Tomatoes with Honey

Roasted Cherry Tomatoes make for a simple yet flexible dish. My friend, Joyce Wallace, who I mention here in the blog often is an amazing gardener and she grows the most delicious heirloom cherry tomatoes from seed in every color. Don’t let the size of cherry tomatoes fool you into thinking that there is not much of interest. They can be full of flavor and sweet as honey.

Cherry Tomatoes are sweet, full of flavor and delicious

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 bruschetta to your guests. I’ve tossed them into angel hair pasta with pine nuts, freshly 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.

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

Did you know that 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.
