Zsuzsa was rediscovering the wheel again and decided to roast some tomatoes. It’s that time of year again. I was getting my camera when I thought… eh, I will look it up how others do it. The first one that caught my eye was the Lebovitz recipe. I had to laugh, he is such a boy the way he cooks, effortlessly just throws it together. Me? I slice it and even in the baking dish the tomatoes are lined up neatly… Perfectionism is a curse I know and the end results do not always justify the means. However… here is my take on it. Serve it with meat as a side dish or use it for crostini. Either way, it will be deliciously tomatoey.
4 wine ripened round tomatoes
cooking spray
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp of fresh finely chopped herbs [I used 1 Tbsp parsley and 1 Tbsp oregano]
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
• Preheat the oven to 350F.
• Spray a glass baking dish with cooking spray.
• Wash the tomatoes and slice each tomato horizontally into 3 parts.
• Set aside the very bottom and the top section for a different use.
• Arrange the tomatoes in the baking dish, leaving space in between the tomato slices.
• Season the tops with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the freshly chopped herbs.
• Drizzle with olive oil.
• Roast in preheated oven for 35 minutes.
• Remove from heat and with a spatula immediately transfer tomato slices to a serving tray. • Do not let the tomatoes reabsorb any liquid.
• Add the remaining liquid to soups or sauces or discard.
• Serve immediately or reserve roasted tomato slices for a different use.


  1. Zsuzsa, I see there is still summer in your Canadian kitchen! The tomatoes look so sunny and luscious.

  2. It's 9:16AM in Kamloops and 11C. We expect 16C in the afternoon an the low will be 8C during the night. We have had lots of sunshine but the days are "getting shorter". We had to harvest the tomato and pepper crop because we had a couple of -1 frost. Other then that, the fall here is extraordinary. I live in the tip of the sunny Okanagan in British Columbia; it's a semi- desert environment. We have mountains, big trees but also lots of sagebrush in the hills and at the riverbanks.
