Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4-5
  • 3-4 large heirloom tomatoes, cut in half horizontally
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh oregano
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp salt and pepper
  • ⅓ cup good quality olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a heavy bottomed braising dish or deep pot, place all the tomatoes, cut side up. Sprinkle on the oregano, garlic, salt and pepper.
  3. Drizzle in the olive oil, making sure to coat the herbs and garlic - this will prevent them from burning. It may seem like a lot of oil, but it makes a beautifully fragrant sauce after cooking.
  4. Bake tomatoes covered for 15 minutes. Remove lid and continue cooking another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  5. Serve tomatoes over pasta, couscous, quinoa or cheesy polenta! Drizzle on the oil from the pan into your starch of choice for an extra kick of flavor!
