Roasted Grape Tomatoes on Mini Toasts

Updated: Oct 3, 2019

Fancy some appetizer or finger food? Look no further. These mini toasts with roasted grape tomatoes will have you coming back for seconds.


Tomatoes are back in season! There are so many varieties at the store that one is spoilt for choice. I enjoy eating tomatoes as is. However, there are times when I like them roasted with herbs and/or balsamic vinegar. Once roasted, they are great with slices of crispy toasts. They even go so well with some al dente pasta.
