Herby Tomatoes

When the garden gives you tons of tomatoes, you come up with different ways to enjoy them. My yellow pear tomato plants have finally stopped producing deliciously sweet fruit. Until the next season. We enjoyed popping them like candy but with the other lovely herbs growing in the garden, we also enjoyed them cooked gently.

In a hot pan, some olive oil. Chopped garlic. The tomatoes. Salt or a seasoning cube. Some pepper. Fresh herbs at the end. Cooked for just long enough for the tomatoes to blister. I especially like the flavor of fresh thyme and tomatoes. That's it. Simple and delicious. You can definitely use any kind of cherry or grape tomato for this and adjust the quantities of the ingredients to taste.
