Blistered Grape Tomatoes are a tasty and healthy side dish that literally takes less than 10 minutes to make!
When it comes to menu planning, the first thoughts for side dishes are for carbs. However, I’m trying to get away from that and think about vegetables first.
As a result, I turned to this favorite recipe. Blistered Grape Tomatoes are quick, easy, and pretty! Just look at that vibrant color! Research shows the more colorful your vegetables are the more nutrients they have.

I like to serve this recipe in a few different ways. First of all, you can serve them as I did as a side dish. Most noteworthy, I exchanged cilantro for basil in the recipe and served them with Mexican dishes.
An alternate method for serving, try these tomatoes for breakfast and serve them over scrambled eggs and goat cheese. No kidding, this combination will certainly wake up your taste buds. It’s very fresh and vibrant!
In addition, you can serve them over soft cheese such as goat, brie, or fresh mozzarella with toasted baguettes slices It makes a quick, easy, and delicious appetizer.
Finally, serve your Blistered Grape Tomatoes over angel hair pasta for a more traditional method. It makes a hearty meatless meal.

Join a CSA or something like that if you really want to think about the vegetables first. One thing I really like about ours is that I make it a challenge to use everything I can. Swiss Chard (not my favorite) comes, I try to find a way that I can like it. In fact, I would say that in the summer time, my CSA guides a majority of our meals.
BTW, This looks simple, beautiful, and tasty. YUM!
