  • 6-8 stems tomatoes on the vine. See note
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper I used flake salt
  • 2 tablespoons good quality balsamic vinegar
  • fresh basil leaves for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place tomatoes on baking sheet.
  • Use a brush to brush the tomatoes with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until tomatoes are tender and some begin to burst.
  • Remove from the oven and garnish with fresh basil.
  • Serve and enjoy!


  • Use ripe tomatoes for the sweetest flavors.
  • You can also use tomatoes off the vine. Using loose cherry tomatoes or glory tomatoes is fine. The instructions are the same.
  • Roast the tomatoes in a pre-heated oven so that they cook evenly.
  • The tomatoes will be very hot inside, so let them sit for a few minutes before serving.
