Slow-Baked Tomatoes with Garlic and Mint
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2  pounds  cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 - 1/2  cup  extra virgin olive oil
  • 7  cloves garlic, peeled, split lengthwise and green shoot removed
  • 1  bunch  fresh mint, trimmed
  • 1 - 2  teaspoons  coarse or flake salt
  • 1  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  •  toasted slices of rustic bread
  •  Goat cheese (optional)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Wash and drain tomatoes well. Pat dry with paper towels.

2. In a nonreactive (such as earthenware) 2-quart baking dish place tomatoes in a single layer. Pour on olive oil so they are very well coated and there should be a thin layer (1/8 inch) of oil on bottom of dish. Toss in garlic, mint, salt and pepper.

3. Bake, uncovered, for 45 to 60 minutes or until tomato skins split and soften but tomatoes still retain their shape.

4. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature. Spoon or mash over slices of toasted bread and serve with goat cheese. Makes 8 servings.
