Honey Roasted Cherry Tomatoes #River Cottage VEG

I'm just starting to see really nice tomatoes in our green market. Summer is truly the time to savor the wonders of fresh tomatoes. This simple recipe really made me appreciate the complexity of the taste of a tomato.

The honey helped to highlight it's sweetness, the salt brought out it's flavor, and garlic and olive oil deepened the richness of the tomato... reminding me a little of how a good slow cooked tomato sauce tastes when it is made with quality tomatoes.

These roasted tomatoes are truly versatile. You can eat them solo on some crostini. I made them into a lunch by adding a spread of fresh ricotta cheese.

Honey Roasted Cherry Tomatoes are also good over pasta, or you can treat them as a salsa and top grilled chicken or seafood.

The chef Hugh Rearnley-Whittingstall suggests that you top a simple risotto with these beauties... I don't think you can go wrong with anything you pair this simply delicious dish with... enjoy.

  1. We have now wonderful cherry tomatoes (I've just bought 2 pounds yesterday), and I'd definitely like to roast them with honey and garlic.
    Sounds really good :)

  8. I love roasted tomatoes--especially cherry tomatoes. I've never tried them with honey. Very versatile and a delicious way to dress up just about anything.

    Your cherry tomatoes were the most-viewed link this week at See Ya in the Gumbo and will be featured tonight. Thanks for stopping by each week with your beautiful dishes, Diane!

  10. Diane, thank you for participating this month again an dthank you for all your wonderful enthusiasm. Sorry about the factthat it has taken me a few days to comment but no comment would go through and even the link to the FFwD did not work for the longest time. But all is well that ends well and I love the way you presented the wonderful Honey-Roasted Tomatoes on Crostini with Ricotta - delciousness pure. Your Baby Carrot and Broad Bean (edamame) Risotto looks fantastic as well - I did end up using broad beans as they are in season around here. Thanks again for being part of the CCC and have a wonderful Monday!
