There are a handful of recipes out there that people think are extremely hard to make, and it’s just not so. One of those is homemade cake — not hard, just a little time consuming. Another is pesto — quick, easy, and so delicious when fresh.
A third is roasted tomatoes, I think. I used to think that roasted tomatoes would be complicated, or at the very least require me to watch ’em. Something so delicious couldn’t be so easy to make, right? Wrong. Very, very wrong.
Last week, I had a batch of tomatoes I knew wasn’t going to last until the end of the week, and I was having a quick, embarrassing dinner of mac and cheese. I wanted a vegetable…and roasted tomatoes quickly became my side! This was imperative to the end of the season of tomatoes, as I have been not so into them this season, and they definitely redeemed themselves in this delicious form.
Roast ’em for like 20 minutes.
What recipes do you make that people think are so fancy but really are so easy you could make ’em in your sleep?
