Sundried tomatoes

Tomatoes, little packs of nutrition, and cooking enhances their lycopene content. What’s not to like?

These are sweet, with a lovely powerful tomato flavour. Great with mozzarella and fresh basil. These took me five mins to prep.

    2 hrs
  • Difficulty
  • lots of tomatoes between cherry and vine size
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • black pepper (optional)
Halve the tomatoes and lay them cut side up on a shallow baking tray.

Drizzle with oil. Sprinkle on salt, and pepper if using.

Roast for two hours in a low oven, about 100-120C.

Store in an airtight jar in olive oil. Or without the oil in the fridge, where they’ll last a few days.

Show off with them, like “Look I actually MADE these sun dried tomatoes on that hot day last week!” Nobody will know you used the oven…
