These low and slow Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes absolutely explode with flavour, are ridiculously easy to make and are good on pretty much anything.
In the end I used these to make something amazing that I’ll tell you about soon. In the beginning I ate a lot of them straight from the pan on a spoon.
Ok on bread.
Fine I ate half of them along with three quarters of a baguette.
Don’t judge. Just make them. You’ll see.
I added in the onions and garlic for a little extra flavour and it was definitely the right call. The garlic gets all soft and sweet and the onions get little charred edges on them that are like little bites of onion candy. The whole dish is juicy, rich, and bursting with flavour, I think this might be your new favourite thing to make and to eat. I know it’s mine!
*I used some pretty big tomatoes from my garden here, but you can use whatever you have, just fill the pan in a nice even layer.
*This is essentially a garlic, onion and tomato confit and if you need a crash course in what that means you can find it here.
*I use white balsamic in this recipe because I really like the flavour and the sweetness it offers. Regular balsamic works just fine too and I wouldn’t be opposed to a good drizzle of a syrupy aged balsamic when these come out of the oven.
