Slow roasting tomatoes: Simply Delicious!

Here is one way to enhance the taste of your tomatoes. Since we can get them quite cheap in bulk from the markets, I usually take those small tomatoes, wash and cut them into half.



Toss with fresh thai basil, dried oregano, salt, pepper and drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, then arrange them nicely on a tray like this. I usually put two trays in my oven and switch on the convection fan. Set heat to 110 degrees celcius.



This is 5-6 hours later. See them all shriveled up. They will have the strong taste almost similar to sun dried tomatoes. Hmm...



Just toss them with your cooked pasta and shrimp or crab meat and you got yourself a tasty tomato based dish. Bon Appetit!

  12. I have the oven on at 225 degrees , I have looked at many web-pages, and they don't say if the door is open or closed. I am wondering if they would dry out a bit more with the oven door open a smidge.
