FFwD - Simple slow-roasted tomatoes
I have just finished watching The Supersizers Go - Wartime episode on SBS. I love this show, and I am so glad that it is back, albeit in repeats. I haven't seen this episode before, so I chuckled all the way through. It is a great way to spend an hour on a Thursday night, and Giles and Sue crack me up with their take on food during each era. They are not afraid to look silly or to subject their poor taste buds and stomachs to some of the most hideous meals one could conjure. If you have never seen this show before, I highly recommend checking out a couple of episodes - if you like food and a laugh, as I do, you will be hooked.
Onto the main program ...
This week's FFwD recipe title says it all - simple slow-roasted tomatoes. Basically, this involves dousing cherry tomatoe halves (or in my case, Kumatoes) with olive oil, salt and pepper, then roasting them in a slow oven for around 3 hours.
The end result is a surprisingly tasty little snack, even a tad overdone like mine. Although I would never go out of my way to make this, if I have some leftover cherry tomatoes from another recipe, I would happily use them up like this.
To catch a gander at what everyone else thought of these, you can maybe check them out at the LYL section of the FFwD website in a day or two.
