Blistered Roast Cherry Tomatoes

Blistered Roast Cherry Tomatoes

For this week’s Sunday Supper, we are featuring a simple and healthy recipe to celebrate one of summer’s favorite foods, tomatoes. Did you know that tomatoes contain an antioxidant called lycopene, which helps the heart and can help prevent some kinds of cancer? They also contain vitamins A and C, as well as potassium and calcium. When they are juicy, sweet and ripe, tomatoes are a delicious addition to any meal. The secret to this recipe is making your own Italian Seasoning and grinding it fresh over the tomatoes. Developed by our own Kate Gilbert, who oversees FinaMill’s social media, Blistered Roast Cherry Tomatoes can be paired with anything from pasta and rice to your favorite cheese. Just add some fresh, crunchy bread and you have the perfect summer meal.
