Slow-Roasted Roma Tomatoes

These are perfection o a roasting pan–great alone, as a side dish, in salsas, in salads, blended into sauces, or as a topping for just about anything you can think of (pizza, pasta, soups, stir-fries).

You can roast the summer’s bounty up and freeze them for use in dishes throughout the year when tomatoes are no longer in season. These are delicious with roasted fish, grilled chicken, or sauteed vegetables.

Eat This With That

I served this atop a beautiful Grass-fed Burger. It was so delicious. You won’t miss the bun. Add your choice of cheese, I added Blue Cheese, Sauteed Mushrooms and onions, and served it on a bed of lettuce.  This burger is packed with robust flavor.
