FFwD - Simple slow-roasted tomatoes



I have just finished watching The Supersizers Go - Wartime episode on SBS.  I love this show, and I am so glad that it is back, albeit in repeats.  I haven't seen this episode before, so I chuckled all the way through.  It is a great way to spend an hour on a Thursday night, and Giles and Sue crack me up with their take on food during each era.  They are not afraid to look silly or to subject their poor taste buds and stomachs to some of the most hideous meals one could conjure.  If you have never seen this show before, I highly recommend checking out a couple of episodes - if you like food and a laugh, as I do, you will be hooked.


Onto the main program ...

This week's FFwD recipe title says it all - simple slow-roasted tomatoes.  Basically, this involves dousing cherry tomatoe halves (or in my case, Kumatoes) with olive oil, salt and pepper, then roasting them in a slow oven for around 3 hours.

The end result is a surprisingly tasty little snack, even a tad overdone like mine.  Although I would never go out of my way to make this, if I have some leftover cherry tomatoes from another recipe, I would happily use them up like this.

To catch a gander at what everyone else thought of these, you can maybe check them out at the LYL section of the FFwD website in a day or two.

I'm obsessed with tomatoes lately.

Slow roasted tomatoes are soooo good. I would imagine that is really nice to have this method during the winter there when tomatoes can often be tasteless otherwise!

lovely looking tomatoes

The biggest challenge with these was finding three hours in which to have the oven on...
I was surprised at how much flavor the slow roasting did create.

These look like a more cooked version of the delicious Nigella moonblush tomatoes which are so tasty! I bet these are even better with more flavour!

I love Supersizers! We don't get it on TV here, so I have to watch it on YouTube.

Roast tomatoes sound delicious. If I can actually get some to grow next year, this would be perfect for a glut! (Fingers crossed.)

Yea..it taste really good though mine was a bit overdone :p and it can be used in pasta , salad and in spread and dips. I paired mine with pan fried dijon mustard pork chop...it was fabulous :)

Have a great weekend,
Elin

My husband liked them as a snack by themselves, but I am thinking of all the different dishes I can use them with!

These sound like they'd be good tossed with some pasta. I hope to have a lot of tomatoes in my garden soon, so maybe I'll try these.
