Roast Tomatoes



3 large tomatoes  

3 cloves garlic  

4 sprigs fresh thyme  

1/4 c olive oil  

1/2 T sugar  

1/4 T salt    


1. Cut tomatoes in half.  Put into a bowl.  Add garlic, thyme, olive oil, salt, pepper, and sugar. Lay out onto a sheet tray, cut side down. Put into a 425F oven for about 5min.  

2. When the skin of the  tomato starts to pull away, remove from oven and peel skin off completely. Lower the oven to 300F. Turn the tomatoes over, cut side up, and return to the oven.  

3. Roast for 1 to 1.5 hour until light color is  achieved and tomato is nicely dehydrated. Cut each half into four pieces.  Add to the greens and beans.
