Nutrition per serving
- 650g tomatoes
- 1 large garlic clove, thinly sliced
- leaves from 2 large sprigs thyme
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Halve the tomatoes and put them, cut side up, in a single layer in a large ovenproof dish or baking tray. Tuck a sliver of garlic into each tomato half and scatter over thyme leaves. Drizzle with the oil, season generously, then bake for 30-40 mins or until the tomatoes are soft and juicy. Leave to cool. Can be roasted and chilled up to 3 days ahead. Bring to room temperature before serving.
To serve, carefully lift the tomatoes onto a serving plate and pour over some of the juices from the roasting dish. Whisk together the honey, vinegar, mustard and a little seasoning to make a dressing, drizzle over the tomatoes and scatter with a few more thyme leaves.
