Oven Roasted Garlic & Herb Tomatoes

Less of a recipe and more of an ‘ooh, I must just use up those tomatoes’ these are great as they are as a side dish, or whizzed up into a glorious pasta sauce, or even a dip.


All the tomatoes you need to use up

1 Bulb Garlic

3 Springs Thyme

2 Bay Leaves

50ml Olive Oil

Salt flakes and cracked Black Pepper


1. Preheat oven 180C. cut the top 1cm from the garlic bulb then tumble all ingredients, stalks and all onto a baking tray. Adding the tomato stalks will impart a glorious greenhouse flavour to the finished dish.

2. Roast for 20-30 minutes, or until just beginning to collapse.

3. Remove from the tin, squeeze the roasted garlic cloves over the tomatoes. Remove the herb and tomato stalks before smooshing everything together with a spoon.

4. Add a sprinkle of salt and a grating of black pepper and you are good to go!
