I had a bunch of grape tomatoes which I had bought from the store last week and I had no plans for using them in any recipe. So I oven-dried them today. 😀 Though the traditional method of drying tomatoes require a whole day and of course, the perfect sunny day but thanks to the oven which made my job easy-peasy. This slow roasting/ oven-drying process helps in dehydrates them and concentrate their flavor. Try these oven-dried tomatoes with salad, pasta, fried rice, toasted bread, pizza or in any of the curry which required dried tomatoes, or eats as it is, they always taste yummy. 🙂
Put those overripe tomatoes for a slow roast in an oven. This only requires 10-15mins of your time that too just for chopping and deseeding the tomatoes. And 2-3hrs of oven drying. Your job is done. 😀 You can use any size tomatoes and make these addictive and delicious dried tomatoes.
- 1 Lb grape tomatoes
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
