Cooking Thursday

Today's recipe is one I've shared before, but it's one of my favorite summer lunches when fresh tomatoes are in season.  I made this the other day and thought I would share it again.  So here you go, something fresh and perfect for a light lunch.

Roasted Balsamic Tomatoes
Large tomatoes 
Minced garlic or garlic powder
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
Oregano, thyme, basil
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wrap a rimmed baking sheet with foil and line with parchment paper.
Cut tomatoes into 3/4 inch slices.  Remove seeds and juice. Poke holes in the bottoms of any end pieces.  Drain, cut side down on a paper towel or a few minutes.
Place tomato slices on prepared pan.  Sprinkle with garlic, then drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and sugar.
Place in oven for 20-25 minutes, until tomatoes are soft, dark and caramelized.
Sprinkle with herbs, allow to sit for a few minutes and enjoy!

These sound so good, Mari. We have plenty of tomatoes in the garden, but none have ripened yet. I'm holding on to this recipe so I can give it a try when the tomatoes start to ripen.

Tomatoes don't taste very good this year, but this recipe would sure help. Thanks

That looks and sound very good, Mari. I'm sure you've heard of this although I hadn't; when I was in the nursing home they served quartered tomatoes with a light touch of Italian dressing. It was good!!
