    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat the oven to 325 degrees.
    2. 2
      Halve the tomatoes and squeeze out the seeds, and place them cut-side up in a 9-by-9-inch glass baking dish.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle the salt and olive oil over them and bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until they're a little caramelized around the edges and slightly shriveled.
    4. 4
      Mince the parsley and the garlic together on a cutting board until very fine to make the persillade; set aside.
    5. 5
      When the tomatoes are done, take them out of the oven, sprinkle the persillade over them and return them to the oven for a few minutes, which will cook the garlic a little without compromising the freshness of the parsley.
    6. 6
      Serve immediately or later at room temperature.

      This was made today to go along with Italian Style Bacon & Eggs and these little gems were marvelous. I had the little grape tomatoes and they worked perfectly. This recipe really gets all of the flavor that the tomatoes have to offer. I served them quite warm and they were simply scrumptious.

      Just perfect, Chef Kate! I used standard cherry tomatoes but I think
      a variety of heirlooms toms would be a good try, too! Coarse French gray salt
      for standard sea salt. This mixture was delicious on everything! I cheated
      and used the mini-food processor to finely mince the garlic and flat leaf parsley.
      Other than that, stayed true to the recipe. We could have made a meal on this alone.
      Thanks for posting! Reviewed for Veg Tag/June.

      Made this as an appetizer for our dinner group's French-themed menu a few weeks ago. They only took about 45 minutes in the oven to get caramelized/shriveled. I served it with crostini and everyone loved them. I'll definitely be making these again!
