Ingredients Nutrition

  • roma tomato, any amount needed (work best because they have dense, meaty flesh and few seeds that hold up well on the grill)
  • olive oil

Directions

  1. Slice the tomatoes in half lengthwise (from stem to tip) and brush the cut sides with olive oil. Place the tomatoes cut side down over a medium flame on a gas grill. If using a charcoal grill, place the tomatoes in the middle of the grill over briquettes that are medium-hot.
  2. When the tomatoes develop dark char marks (about 5 to 8 minutes depending on size and heat of grill). Continue cooking until the skins begin to blacken in spots. Then, remove the tomatoes from the grill, pile them in a bowl, tightly cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
  3. When the tomatoes are cool enough to handle, peel off the blackened skins and dice the flesh, making sure to reserve the juices.
  4. Use immediately or pack tomatoes in a freezer proof container with juices.
