There's nothing more delicious than tomatoes roasted with tart balsamic vinegar and fragrant herbs. Before serving, remove the tomatoes from the slow cooker and be sure to allow a full ten minutes for the cheesy breadcrumb topping to soak into each savory tomato half.

  • 2 large firm underripe tomatoes (about 10 ounces each), halved crosswise
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup coarse soft whole-wheat breadcrumbs (1 slice)
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • Chopped fresh basil (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Lightly coat an unheated 3- or 3½-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Place tomatoes, cut sides up, in the bottom of the slow cooker. Combine vinegar, oil, garlic, dried basil, oregano, rosemary, and salt in a small bowl. Spoon evenly over the tomatoes in the cooker.
  2. Cover and cook on Low for 2 hours or on High for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add breadcrumbs and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in Parmesan.
  4. To serve, remove the tomatoes from the slow cooker and place on a serving platter. Drizzle the cooking liquid evenly over the tomatoes. Sprinkle with the breadcrumb mixture. Let stand for 10 minutes to absorb flavors. If desired, garnish with basil.
