Roasted tomatoes topped with tarragon and garlic make a fresh and easy to prepare side dish.

This recipe is great because the prep work takes about 5 minutes and then you just pop them in the oven.

I love the combination of tomatoes and tarragon so much that I made a soup out of it as well.

There are so many things you can top tomatoes with. Cheese. Different kinds of herbs. A balsamic drizzle.

I see more roasted tomato recipes in this blog’s future.

Roasted Tomatoes

Easy roasted tomatoes that make a great little side dish.
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 45 minutes
Total: 50 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4-5 Tomatoes (the "on the vine" variety work the best)
  • Garlic powder
  • Lemon pepper
  • Dried tarragon
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Olive oil


  • Cut tomatoes into halves and cut out the cores.
  • Lightly sprinkle tomatoes with garlic powder, lemon pepper, tarragon, and salt & pepper.
  • Lightly drizzle olive oil over tomatoes (some will run off and that's fine).
  • Bake at 375F for 45 minutes (I use a glass baking dish).

    Great idea! I enjoy grilled tomatoes almost every week in the summer months, but would never have thought of popping them in the oven (great for when it gets too cold!) – this looks so simple and delicious. Thanks so much for sharing!
