charMedium sized vine ripened tomatoes
Metal skewers or grilling basket
Plastic sandwich bags or plastic container

This is a handy way to peel the skins off of tomatoes or any pepper. Using a metal skewer or grilling basket, char the outside of a tomato directly over the flames of a stovetop. Rotate so that the entire outside of the tomato is blackened. Then place the tomato into a sandwich bag or plastic container right away and seal it, locked in its own steam for about 3-5 minutes. When you remove the tomato from the bag the skin will peel away easily. Repeat until you have enough peeled roasted tomatoes for your dish.

What to do with your roasted tomatoes:

  • Sprinkle chopped basil and shredded parmesan cheese on top place back under broiler setting to brown off the top
  • Transfer to a large bowl and mash to make fresh tomato sauce. Remove any remaining hard pits and skins. Then season with your favorite herbs and spices.
  • Use for as a base for vegetable soup or make your own tomato soup
  • Mix with olives and make a chunky tapenade
