Refreshingly easy! I made this without cooking! Kept it raw. Since my tomatoes were vine ripened. Great for hot days! Thanks.

What a wonderful way to use my beloved za'atar. During cooking, I basted the tomatoes twice with the pan juices. Be careful when you take the first bite -- they hold their heat.

Wonderful way to use tomatoes! Such a great recipe! I made my own Za'atar from your Za'atar recipe, although I did add a few pine nuts to the mix as I did not have enough sesame seeds. The flavour works so well with the baked tomatoes. The family really enjoyed this recipe and I will be making this again. Thanks Elmotoo for another fantastic recipe.

These are wonderful tomatoes!! I used your "My Own Za'atar" for this recipe. DH and I both agree that the flavour is just perfect. These will be made alot during the summer. Thank you for sharing. Made for African Recipe Fun.

I love roasted tomatoes - so these were great to me! I like the combination of flavors in the za'atar with the tomatoes, they pair very well.

Za'taar works very well on many veggies, I've used on zucchini, thinly sliced carrots etc. But this is the first time for tomatoes. Don't know how I overlooked that one, thanks for posting

I had to try this recipe after finding that Elmotoo had put this together after getting a little surprise. It really does go well together and I love the warmth of the tomatoes, which will add a mood of grilled kebabs to any middle eastern or mediterranean meal. I served this with another middle eastern side, Jan's (Aubergine or Eggplant Salad). All these two need is any favorite entree to wrap this up as a good meal with a bottle of wine. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue

I didn't have any za'atar mix so I used another Middle Eastern spice mix, Baharat Spice Blend. I added marjoram, thyme, & sesame seeds to the mixture to make it more like za'atar then sprinkled it on top of the tomatoes. Everyone loved it.
