Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and basil.
  3. Pour half of this mixture onto a cookie sheet and spread it around.
  4. Place tomatoes cut-side down on cookie sheet on top of the oil blend.
  5. Drizzle tomatoes with remaining oil, then sprinkle with the maple sugar and salt.
  6. Bake slowly in oven at 300 degrees for 3 hours.
  7. Blend or process when done.
  8. Serve hot over pasta, rice, or white beans (If you don't have 3 hours, you can roast them at 400 for 30 to 45 minutes or broil for 15 minutes, but it won't taste the same).
