Oven dried tomatoes

Sharing is caring!

It’s super easy to make up batches of oven dried tomatoes and use them in some totally tempting tomato based recipes.

First of all let’s make up a tray of oven dried tomatoes, you can use any of the small varieties of tomatoes you like, my favourites include cherry tomatoes, piccolo tomatoes and baby plum tomatoes or a mix of all three. It’s also nice to use different coloured tomatoes.

Bruschetta topping – load these beautifully sweet oven dried tomatoes onto garlic brushed bruschetta, drizzle with olive oil and perhaps a shaving of Parmesan cheese.

Mozzarella salad – scatter torn mozzarella and oven dried tomatoes onto a small platter, drizzle with olive oil, add some freshly chopped parsley and lemon zest, freshly sliced chilli if you like things spicy.

Spaghetti sauce – drop freshly cooked spaghetti into the roasting tin with the oven dried tomatoes and toss to coat in the lovely flavours. Serve with a green salad.

Pizza – whizz the tomatoes in the blender and use as the tomato base sauce on pizza. Top with mozzarella, sliced mushrooms and sprigs of thyme.

Antipasti – tip the oven dried tomatoes into a little dish and serve as part of an antipasti spread.

Cheese board – delicious alongside crusty french bread, cheese, olives and freshly sliced figs.

Stuffed chicken breasts – slice open a chicken breast stuff with tomatoes, wrap with parma ham and bake in the oven for a juicy flavoursome twist. Serve with garlicky mashed potatoes and green beans.
