Facts: Summer food is my favorite food, and tomato season is the most wonderful time of the year. At the peak of their season, tomatoes are crazy flavorful when simply enjoyed raw with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, flaky salt, and basil. If you enjoy tomatoes every other day of the Summer like me, you’re probably looking for ways to switch it up, and that’s where slow-roasting comes in. Slow-roasting tomatoes will be your new favorite party trick. It’s a simple technique that’ll bring major flavor to just about any savory dish.
In this recipe, whole cherry tomatoes are roasted with smashed garlic cloves and olive oil until caramelized, which concentrates their flavor. Once roasted, you’ll spoon the tomato and garlic mixture (and the leftover tomato-y, garlicky oil) over fresh burrata, and top with fresh herbs. Enjoy with crusty or grilled bread, and serve with a bottle of your favorite wine. Check out the Riffs section underneath the recipe for ways to spin this dish all season long.
