Toms 'n' Pom (Vegan-Friendly)

“Greatly influenced by this outstanding recipe by Lalaloula: Oven-Baked Balsamic Cherry Tomatoes With Rosemary, I wanted to make a quick and uncomplicated tomato side dish to accompany a Middle Eastern-themed meal. Use any type of tomato making certain it's good quality. Off season, use organic canned tomatoes.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Place the tomatoes in baking dish and drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Scatter the onion slivers and minced garlic on top.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the honey and pomegranate syrup together and pour over the tomatoes and onions. Tip: to make pouring easier, lightly grease the inside of the bowl with olive oil.
