In the summer months, when tomatoes are sweet and flavoursome, this makes a great snack any time. Plum tomatoes are the best ones to use preferably those that are vine-ripened in the sun because they keep their shape when roasted.

  • 12 plum tomatoes
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 75 ml olive oil
  • A few sprigs of fresh thyme
  • salt and black pepper
To Serve
