Roasted Tomatoes with White Beans

Juicy & sweet roasted cherry tomatoes, tender garlic, and caramelized shallots mixed with creamy white beans spooned on top of garlicky crostini. A simple & delicious side dish or appetizer.

Roasted Tomatoes with White Beans

These vegetarian roasted tomatoes with white beans may be my new favorite dish. My cherry tomato plant has been bursting with fresh tomatoes & we have eaten our fill of those tasty little beauties fresh from the vine. I decided to make this wonderful recipe that I found on Smitten Kitchen using some of our cherry tomatoes and I’m so happy I did. The tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, and shallots made the most fantastic sauce for the white beans, and topping it off with a bunch of fresh basil made the combination even tastier. I served this dish with garlicky crostini but it would be just as lovely on its own. We all enjoyed this recipe, especially my son and me and it paired well with chicken Francese.

How to Make Roasted Tomatoes with White Beans

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spread two tablespoons of oil on the bottom of a large 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Arrange the sliced tomatoes cut side up in the baking dish. Nestle in the sliced garlic and shallots. Drizzle with two more tablespoons of olive oil then season them well with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, to taste, and crushed red pepper flakes.

Roast the tomatoes for 20 minutes, or until everything is juicy & bubbly. Remove from the oven onto a cooling rack and use a fork to mash the tomatoes, being careful if they spray.  Side Note: You may pick out the tomato skins or leave them in, as desired.

Add the drained beans and stir to combine. Return to the oven to roast for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and drizzle with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil; set aside.

Meanwhile, place the crostini on a baking sheet and place it into the oven to cook for 5-7 minutes, or until golden brown and a bit crisp. Remove from the oven and rub a garlic clove over each warm slice of crostini.

Top the tomatoes with lots of fresh basil and serve immediately with the garlic crostini. Enjoy.

  1. This is a small thing, since the use of beans is specified in your text, but you seem to have left them out of the recipe box.
