Skinny Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes

Gluten Free Living – 2014

Skinny Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes is a simple side dish that’s very tasty! Large slices of heirloom tomatoes are sliced and seasoned with salt and pepper, thyme and rosemary and then olive oil is drizzled over the top before baking. Yum. You can’t get much simpler than this, yet the taste is savory and flavorful. For those of you with gardens, this quick and easy recipe is a great way to use up heirloom tomatoes! (Or any kind of tomato for that matter!). It’s extremely low calorie, healthy, gluten free and vegan.

A couple of weeks ago, I asked a friend if she would take some pictures of me for my blog. The one I had been using was pretty yucky and I wanted something without a horrid mustard yellow background! Sorry, it’s not my favorite color and we’ve painted every inch of this house since we moved in two and-a-half years ago to get rid of it! I offered to buy her family dinner at her favorite restaurant and she said, yes! The five of us enjoyed a delicious meal at Campuzanos Restaurant here in town and then afterward we went to a local park for pictures. It has some nice bridges, old gnarly trees, and dated buildings that are great  backgrounds for shots.

Corey’s husband, John, is a grocer so he is always bringing us food whenever we have them over for a meal. He gave us two two-pound containers of large strawberries and these heirloom tomatoes. The tomatoes sat in the frig about a week before I finally decided I needed to use them up before they went bad. I ended up serving them with Herb Chicken with Roasted Garlic when my sister was here last week. She is really trying to watch her weight so this was a great side dish for her….low calorie and healthy.

If you want quick and easy, this is it! If you want economical, this recipe will do it! If you want the convenience of oven roasting, this recipe is for you. And, if you need healthy, low calorie, gluten free and vegan, Skinny Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes should be right up your alley!

Slice one tomato and layer in a dish sprayed with olive oil cooking spray. Generously sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add about 1/4 tsp. each of thyme and rosemary. Use MORE if you really like those seasonings. And, if you have fresh seasonings, by all means, use fresh!

Slice down another heirloom tomato and layer the slices over top of the previous layer. Again, sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Then add another 1/4 tsp. (or more) of thyme and rosemary.
