Homemade Oven Dried Tomatoes

Homemade oven dried tomatoes, slow-baked in the oven makes these oven dried tomatoes truly the best. Drizzle with olive oil, toss with spices to make the perfect appetizer or side dish.

  • Pre-heat oven to 200°C.

  • Slice the baby tomatoes in half lengthwise and place on lightly greased (drizzle with a little olive oil) baking sheet. Toss to coat and spread out. Bake in the middle of the oven for 20 minutes, then lower the heat to 150°C and continue to bake for approximately 1 - 1½ hours. The tomatoes should be dry, remove from the oven and let cool. 

  • We like to then toss the dried tomatoes with olive oil, chopped garlic, salt, oregano, fresh chopped parsley, chopped fresh basil leaves and some hot pepper flakes. 

CHEF’S TIP: 

Your (sun) oven dried tomatoes can be used in a multitude of ways. Top some on a pizza, chop them up and toss with your favourite al dente pasta, use them in a frittata, eat them on your sourdough bread, or toss them in a salad.
