Here’s a tip: slow roasted tomatoes are not to be missed! Roasting tomatoes can be a good way to add a bit extra flavor to not quite in-season tomatoes. The only secret–timing is everything! If you roast the tomatoes for too long; they can become too soft and mushy.

Adding toppings like goat cheese and fresh basil leaves add a pinch of summer flavor that complements the taste of warmed tomatoes.
