I have discovered the simple pleasure of roasting tomatoes. This summer I have eaten these almost every day because they are so simple to make, healthy, and full of flavor! I use my counter top sized oven on the broiler setting and they come out slightly charred and delicious in about 15 minutes.
A handful of washed grape tomatoes
A drizzle of olive oil
A handful of fresh thyme
A sprinkle of kosher salt
A sprinkle of fresh cracked black pepper
One small chopped shallot
Preheat counter top oven to the broil setting.
 Chopped the shallot in thin stripes. Slice the grape tomatoes once in half.
 Place the sliced shallot and tomatoes on a foil covered baking sheet.
 Drizzle olive oil over the shallot and tomatoes and toss gently with your hands. Wash hands.
 Sprinkle tomatoes with fresh thyme, salt, and pepper.
 Place in the oven for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees or your low broiler setting.
I then like to cool the vegetables slightly and toss them in pasta dishes or in a fresh field greens salad. Enjoy!
