If there’s one vegetable recipe, I cannot get enough of in the summer, it’s juicy, ripe cherry tomatoes roasted ’til they blister and burst. Those red, orange, yellow, and purplish hues draw me in every time… especially when you can still smell the freshness of the vine they grew on! Roasted with olive oil, vinegar and garlic, they taste like sweet edible jewels. So delectable they’re almost candy-like, but better.

Roasted tomatoes are incredibly versatile, too! Top toasted crostini with your roasted tomatoes, mix them into frittatas, or use as a pizza topping, or sandwich spread. You can even cover and refrigerate them in a glass jar, and they will keep for up to one week. I doubt you will have difficulty finding a way to use them before then!

The steps to your own garlic roasted cherry tomatoes couldn’t be more simple. Grab several pints of the most scrumptious looking cherry tomatoes you can find, and pop them on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with freshly minced garlic. The more the merrier in my house, but three cloves will do. Pour over a quarter cup of good olive oil and a couple tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. Balsamic really brings out the tang and sweetness of the tomatoes!
