HOW TO ROAST CHERRY TOMATOES

The process for roasting tomatoes is delightfully simple. This just may become one of your favorite cast-iron skillet recipes!

  • STEP 1: Thinly slice the garlic lengthwise. Roughly chop the oregano.
  • STEP 2: Add cherry tomatoes to a mixing bowl. Drizzle them with olive oil. Toss to coat.
  • STEP 3: In a heavy cast-iron pan, heat the olive oil, garlic and oregano. Stir for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes, until the garlic is beautifully fragrant.
  • STEP 4: Add the tomatoes to the pan. Stir for about 3 minutes. We want the skins to lightly blister and split, but we don’t want the tomatoes to burst!
