Roasted Tomatoes


Roasted tomatoes with fresh herbs are a perfect side dish or appetizer topping. Spread a spoonful over grilled steak, chicken, or fish. Add this dish to your collection of cast-iron skillet recipes!


  • 2 pints heirloom medley cherry tomatoes (11/2 pounds)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 large cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, sliced into thin strips
  • 3 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • Pink Himalayan salt, to taste
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • Optional: shaved Parmesan cheese


  1. Thinly slice the garlic. Roughly chop the oregano. In a medium bowl, toss the cherry tomatoes in 3 tablespoons of olive oil until they’re lightly coated.
  2. In a cast iron skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil along with the garlic and oregano. Stir for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes, until the garlic becomes beautifully fragrant. Add the tomatoes to the pan. Stir for about 3 minutes or until the skins lightly blister and split – but don’t allow the tomatoes to burst!
  3. Remove the pan from heat. Allow the tomatoes to rest for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Grind salt and pepper over the tomatoes. Sprinkle sliced basil on top. Garnish with fresh sprigs of rosemary!
  5. If desired, scatter slivers of Parmesan cheese over the surface of this dish!



  • To serve as a side dish, sprinkle a bit of shaved Parmesan cheese over the top. Serve directly from the cast-iron pan!
  • As flavorful garnish for grilled meat, use a spoon to transfer the tomatoes directly on top of the meat. Gently spread the mixture across the top of the steak, fish or chicken.
  • As a topping for bruschetta, chop skillet roasted tomatoes and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Spoon the mixture over toasted slices of an artisan baguette.
