  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes stemmed and halved (your favorite variety)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil or your favorite herbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Place the cherry tomatoes on a large rimmed baking sheet and toss with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, basil, salt, and pepper. Turn each tomato top side up and spread in a single layer.
  • Roast for 2 - 2.5 hours (depending on the size) or until the edges are dried but the insides are still juicy, checking for doneness after 2 hours. Cool on a wire rack, then place in an air tight container, tossing with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil to preserve.


  • If your cherry tomatoes are on the smaller side, check for doneness after 1.5 hours.
  • Change up these tomatoes with your favorite herbs or red pepper flakes for a bit of heat.
  • Store cherry tomatoes in an air tight container and use within 2 weeks.
  • Roasted cherry tomatoes are the perfect topping for crostini, or add them to cheese boards, pasta, salads and sandwiches!
