I love fresh, plump tomatoes in the summer. They have so much flavor on their own that I find it delicious to thickly slice, salt & pepper, and drizzle them with olive oil. Yum!

Unfortunately, it’s winter and the best vine picked tomatoes are few & far between. Yes, tomatoes can be grown year round indoors but they’re not quite the same to me. Luckily, roasting tomatoes brings out great flavor.

This quick & easy recipe is a great side dish to any meal – brunch, lunch, dinner, you name it! I served mine alongside some Beer Chicken and Creamed Spinach.

The leftovers are tasty too. I chopped up a leftover tomato & ate it with cottage cheese. Give it a try & tell me what you think!
