Blistered Cherry Tomatoes takes the innate ‘tomato’ flavor and condenses and enhances these little bites of heaven, making them even more sweet and juicy! Highly recommend!
Blistering tomatoes is as simple as a quick sauté in olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper, but the technique does something a little magical to them.
After only 4-6 minutes, these succulent red nibbles are ready for a variety of uses!
I love them by themselves, on my Goat Cheese Crostini, on pizza, tossed with pasta, as a sandwich spread, charcuterie board, and so much more!
You will need:
- Cherry or grape tomatoes
- A skillet
- Olive oil
- Fresh garlic
