I Heart Tomatoes!

Scientifically speaking, a tomato is a fruit as it is developed from the ovary in the base of the flower and contains seeds of a plant.  That’s according to Ask.com.  Whatever you think a tomato is, fruit or vegetable that’s really not the question.  I just want to know if you like tomatoes as  much as I do.

Plum, Roma, Beefsteak tomatoes, it doesn’t matter, I love them all.  Cherry, green, salad…YES, love them too.

Roasted Cherry Tomatoes with Fresh Herbs

A couple of weeks ago my work group went to the Blue Ribbon Cooking & Culinary Center in Seattle.  The food was so good and they were nice enough to give us the recipes.

Tonight I made the Roasted Cherry Tomatoes with Fresh Herbs.  And may I just say YUMMY!!!!  These were like candy; sweet, plump and juicy.  Apologies, I forgot to take a picture but here’s one from our visit to Blue Ribbon.  I swear, mine looked the same way.

Blue Ribbon Culinary 091 Here’s the recipe…

4 cups cherry tomatoes
1/3 cup olive oil
1 pinch salt and fresh ground pepper
2 teaspoons parsley, chopped fresh
2 teaspoons basil, chopped

Coat sauté pan with olive oil and heat to medium-high heat.  Chop Basil and parsley and sauté until soft.  Add tomatoes for about 5 minutes, just enough to have them start getting soft.  Place on parchment paper.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place the tomatoes in an oiled roasting pan just large enough to hold them in one layer.
