Why these air fryer tomatoes are the best
Air fryer tomatoes are a simple and quick way to enjoy the savory flavor that comes from a roasted tomato. Tossed in Italian seasonings and roasted, they turn out juicy and flavorful. These tomatoes are great on their own, but they add a depth of flavor to a caprese salad or a roasted tomato pasta sauce that can’t be beat!
You can substitute different types of tomatoes if you prefer, any other small tomato, like a grape tomato should cook around the same time. If you are going to roast a larger tomato, slice them to about ½ inch thick and adjust the cooking time to 7-8 minutes. Using the larger tomatoes, like a plum tomato is great for adding to a burger.
Here’s what you’ll need to make them
How to make air fryer roasted tomatoes
Prep your tomatoes. Cut the tomatoes in half, whichever direction you prefer. Add tomatoes, oil and seasonings to a mixing bowl and stir until all the tomatoes are well coated.
Preheat air fryer to 400˚F. Add the tomatoes to the cooking basket and roast for 9-10 minutes. You will not need to flip or stir the tomatoes. Allow the tomatoes to cool slightly before removing them.
Tips for making roasted cherry tomatoes
You do not have to core the tomatoes before roasting them in the air fryer. I would make sure you cut the tomatoes in half before roasting them so some of the juice are able to be cooked out.
Parchment paper is safe for inside of the air fryer. If you want to lay a piece down before roasting the tomatoes make sure there is still open area for the air to flow through. I did not use anything to help with clean-up and my air fryer clean basket cleaned out super easily.
You can keep these stored in an airtight container in your refrigerator for 7-10 days.
