  Print this Recipe
 Serves: 6
8 deep red tomatoes
3 fresh thyme sprigs, plus extra to garnish
12 garlic cloves, unpeeled
75ml / 2 /12 fl oz olive oil
salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 220ºC / 425ºF. Cut the tomatoes in half lengthways and arrange, cut-side up, in a single layer in a large, oven proof dish. Tuck the thyme sprigs and garlic cloves between them.

Drizzle the olive oil all over the tomatoes and season to taste with pepper. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until the tomatoes are softened and beginning to char slightly around the edges.

Remove and discard the thyme sprigs. Season the tomatoes to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with the extra thyme sprigs and serve hot or warm. Squeeze the pulp from the garlic over the tomatoes at the table.
