Roasted tomatoes dressed in garlic, olive oil and balsamic vinegar

This is one of my favourite suppers, just a few sliced tomatoes, dressed in olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and served with hot French crusty bread, simple but delicious.

Serves 4
Prep Time 5 mins
Cooking Time 20 mins
  • 8 Large tomatoes, sliced
  • 3 Medium garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • Handful of fresh chopped basil
  • 4-5 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • Slice the tomatoes in half
  • Lay in a medium size baking tin
  • Sprinkle the chopped garlic over the tomatoes
  • Mix the olive oil and the vinegar together in a container and shake vigorously (see Cooks tips 1.)
  • Add the basil to the mixture, to infuse (see Cooks tips 2.)
  • Pour over the tomatoes
  • Bake in a pre heated oven 425°F/ 220°C/Gas mark 7 for 20 mins
Cook's tips
  • 1. It doesn’t really matter if you’re a bit over with the oil or vinegar, as long as it’s roughly one third vinegar to two thirds olive oil
  • 2. If you infuse the basil in the oil and vinegar it will prevent it burning
  • Medium size baking tin
Shopping List
  • 8 Large tomatoes
  • Garlic
  • Fresh basil
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
