Honey Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

Served on top of a simple risotto or as a complement to almost any other grilled or roasted veg, but I particularly like them piled on toast with a sprinkling of flaky sea salt.

1 pound cherry tomatoes

2 garlic cloves

1 tablespoon clear honey

3 tablespoons olive oil

Flaky sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

 

Preheat the oven to 375Β°F/190Β°C. Lightly oil a roasting pan. Halve the tomatoes and place them, cut side up, in the dish. They should fit snugly with little or no space between them.

 

Crush the garlic with a pinch of salt, then beat it with the honey, olive oil, and a good grinding of pepper. Spoon this sticky, garlicky mixture over the cherry tomatoes. Roast for about 30 minutes, until golden, juicy + bubbly.
