The tomatoes I used in this dish were quite small so I used three to serve two people, however normally I would only use two tomatoes.
I used to roast tomatoes almost every time I served them, no matter what - in salads, with roasted meats, whatever. But more recently I have been serving them raw...but I think roasting may be about to come back into my repertoire.
Sumac is a deliciously tangy spice that matches beautifully with roasted tomatoes. If you have never tried it, you definitely should.
Ingredients (serves 2)
2 large tomatoes (or 3 smaller ones)
1 teaspoon sumac
Freshly ground salt and pepper
Handful of parsley
Olive oil to drizzle
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Cut the tomatoes in half. Place in a roasting dish and top with sumac, salt and pepper, parsley and a drizzle of olive oil. Roast for 30-40 minutes or until soft.
