Cherry Tomato & Caramelised Onion Tarte Tatin recipe

I love roasted tomatoes, they are one of my favourite things.  They take on a delicious sweetness and it’s amazing how roasting them brings out so much more flavour than you would find in a fresh tomato.   I love trying roasted tomatoes in a variety of dishes, so, I decided to try a roasted cherry tomato tarte tatin.

I’ve made mushroom tarte tatin previously, and it was delicious and I’ve made it a number of times since, so I knew a roasted cherry tomato version would be just as delicious, if not more-so.  Slow roasted cherry tomatoes, caramelised onions and flaky pastry.  What is there not to love?

I served my tarte tatin’s with a simple lettuce salad as I didn’t want anything to overpower or take anything away from the delicious tomato flavour, but you could serve them with whatever you like.
