Roasting brings out the tomato’s intense flavor. It also makes it soft and squishy. Plus, it ups the nutritional content. An important antioxidant found in tomatoes called lycopene comes out after they’ve been heated.
So it’s really a good idea to have roasted tomatoes once in a while. Throw in some mozzarella to add creamy goodness and serve them on a layer of wild rockets and drizzle with basil and garlic dressing, and you can’t ask for anything more!
