Here’s a quick and tasty recipe for next time you have some juicy little tomatoes to use.


2 punnets (or 500g) x small tomatoes (cut in halves)

A small handful x fresh aromatic herbs roughly chopped, oregano, thyme, rosemary, parsley – any combination or just one of these varieties is fine

2 tbsp x extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp x sweet paprika

1/3 tsp x fennel seeds

Several good twists x freshly cracked black pepper

2 cloves x fresh garlic (crushed and roughly chopped)

Tiny drizzle x balsamic vinegar

About 1/2-3/4 tsp x sea salt (use your taste buds to decide)


• Preheat oven to 160c

• Toss all ingredients together

• Spread evenly onto baking tray and place in oven for 2 hours


How to use:

• Serve for breakfast with toast, toss in salads or serve with a grazing table and olives when you next have friends around.

• They will last in the fridge for up to 5 days (or about 7 days if submerged under olive oil)
