Roasted Cherry Tomato and Garlic Dip

Oven-roasted cherry tomato and garlic make this delicious dip absolutely addictive. Sweet, tangy and garlicky. You can dip some crunchy vegetables into it, spread it over the toast or toss it with some pasta. Heirloom or vine-ripe tomatoes work well too.

Ingredients

16 ounces cherry tomatoes
halved, or heirloom, or vine-ripe tomates, sliced into 1/2-inch thick
1 whole garlic
1 head, top cut off
*
2 tablespoons olive oil
for drizzling
1 x salt and black pepper
for sprinking
*
2 tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin
½ cup white beans
drained and rinsed, optional
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
½ tablespoon balsamic vinegar
or to taste
1 teaspoon lemon juice
or to taste

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400℉ (200℃).

Place the tomates and head of garlic on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Drizzle the olive oil over the tomatoes and garlic.

Sprinkle about ¼ teaspoon salt and ⅛ teaspoon black pepper.

Roast for 50 to 60 minutes until the tomatoes are shriveled and garlic become soft.

Cool for a few minutes until the garlic is cool enough to handle.

Squeeze the garlic cloves out of the skin.

Transfer the roasted tomatoes and garlic cloves into a food processor along with extra-virgin olive oil, white beans if using, parmesan cheese, vinegar and lemon juice.

Process until smooth. Adjust seasoning with salt, pepper, vinegar and lemon juice to taste.

Serve or cover with a plastic wrap, put in the frige until ready to use.

Note: adding white beans gives the dip extra creaminess and thickness, this is optional.

My mother-in law made this as a side dish at Thanksgiving. It was delicious, everyone just couldn't stop eating it. We spread the dip on the thinly sliced sour dough bread, and it was so good. If you don't like bean in it, you can omit it. I actually liked the creaminess from the white beans. Give it a shot and you will love it.
