Roasted Sliced Tomatoes

Roasting develops the flavor of tomatoes, brushed with EVOO and simply seasoned with thyme and salt and pepper.


  • 4 small vine-ripened tomatoes
  • EVOO, for drizzling
  • Salt and pepper
  • Leaves from 2 or 3 sprigs fresh thyme, finely chopped


Preheat the oven to 300°F.

Put a cooling rack over a baking sheet. Slice the tomatoes crosswise into thirds. Arrange the slices on the rack, tops and bottoms cut side up. Dress the tomatoes with a little EVOO, season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with the thyme. Roast the tomatoes for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and arrange them on a serving platter.
