Do you ever just cruise the grocery store and see something then you automatically have to make something with it? I do this all the time! The other day I came across the cutest cherry tomatoes on the vine. So cute! So I knew I just had to make something with them. So roasted bruschetta was for dinner! Cherry tomatoes are sweeter than regular tomatoes, but roasted them brings all the beautiful sweetness out. I didn’t even chop these tomatoes, I just roasted them on the vine as is. This is a super simple recipe that is utterly delicious!
Roasted Cherry Tomato Bruschetta
1 pound cherry tomatoes on the vine
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (optional)
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Maldon sea salt
1 French baguette sliced and toasted
Preheat an oven to 400 F.
Once the oven is to temperature, place the cherry tomatoes, vine and all, in a roasting pan. And place in the oven and roast for 12-15 minutes.
Once the tomatoes are roasted let them cool for about 5 minutes.
Once the tomatoes are cool, remove them from the vine and place in a medium-size mixing bowl. Add the garlic, basil and olive oil to the bowl. Gently mix to combine.
To serve, top a slice of toasted baguette with a large spoon full of the bruschetta and season each one with Maldon sea salt. Then… Enjoy!
