Semi-Dried Tomatoes Recipe

I love the intense taste of semi-dreid tomatoes, but have you noticed that shop bought ones are usually soaked in unhealthy heat processed canola oils? These vegetable oils, also known as industrial seed oils,  includes canola, corn, peanut, safflower, sunflower, and soybean oils.

These oils are bad for us for a number of reasons, including;

  • Promoting chronic inflammation
  • Increasing adiposity
  • Increasing trans fat intake
  • Displacing nutrient-dense, cardioprotective foods in the diet

Reading labels carefully, and understanding the truth of the foods you consume is the right step to your healthy life promoting diet!

This recipe is great because it is easy and you control the quality of the ingredients is it!

  • 500 g cherry tomatoes or Roma tomato
  • 1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic finely sliced


  • Preheat your oven to 150°C. Line two large baking sheets with baking paper.
  • Slice tomatoes in half if they are small. If they are larger, cut into quarters.
  • Lay all the tomatoes skin side down on the baking paper lined trays. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook for 1 – 2 hours. Open the door every 15 minutes or so to let out steam, this speeds up the process. Cook until the edges are slightly brown. See picture.
  • In a glass storage bowl, and preferably when the tomatoes are still hot, layer the tomatoes on the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle some herbs over the top, place a few shavings of garlic amongst them, and then drizzle olive oil over the top. Continue layering in this way until the tomatoes are used up
  • Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks if covered in oil, or freeze for later. Give it a day or so to let all the flavours infuse.
