Italian Roasted Tomatoes

20 Min

Don't save all your tomatoes for the salad! Keep some aside for this fresh-as-can-be side dish. Roasting tomatoes is a super way to bring out their sweet juices, and makes for an easy, low-carb go-along.

What You'll Need

  • Cooking spray
  • 4 ripe tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder*
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano*
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Coat a 9 x 13-inches baking dish with cooking spray.*

  2. Core the tomatoes and cut in half horizontally; place in the baking dish cut-side up.

  3. In a small bowl, combine the oil, garlic, onion powder, oregano, salt, and pepper; mix well. Evenly brush the cut sides of the tomatoes with the mixture.

  4. Sprinkle the tops evenly with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes, or until the tomatoes are soft and the tops are browned. Sprinkle with basil, and serve.


*To make this a gluten-free recipe, use seasonings with no added starch from a gluten-containing source, and nonstick cooking spray with no flour added.
