Roasted Grape Tomatoes with Fresh Basil and Balsamic Vinegar

This is one of our family’s very favorite side dishes. It goes with any protein and is incredibly easy to make. Roasting tomatoes makes them extra sweet and juicy. I simply roast them with a bit of olive oil, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper for 7-9 minutes. I then drizzle very good balsamic vinegar and fresh basil ribbons on top. It’s really healthy and delicious. My entire family loves these tomatoes – especially my son .

  • 2 cups of grape tomatoes, cleaned
  • 1-2 tsp olive oil
  • Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 4-5 fresh basil leaves cut chiffonade style
  • Very good balsamic vinegar, to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a glass baking dish with olive oil cooking spray. Add the grape tomatoes, olive oil, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste. Toss to coat evenly. Roast in the oven for 7-9 minutes until plump and just about to burst. Remove from the oven and drizzle with balsamic vinegar and basil ribbons. Enjoy.
