  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Halve the tomatoes and put them, cut side up, in a single layer in a large ovenproof dish or baking tray. Tuck a sliver of garlic into each tomato half and scatter over thyme leaves. Drizzle with the oil, season generously, then bake for 30-40 mins or until the tomatoes are soft and juicy. Leave to cool. Can be roasted and chilled up to 3 days ahead. Bring to room temperature before serving.

  2. To serve, carefully lift the tomatoes onto a serving plate and pour over some of the juices from the roasting dish. Whisk together the honey, vinegar, mustard and a little seasoning to make a dressing, drizzle over the tomatoes and scatter with a few more thyme leaves.

Made this with cherry tomatoes and it was absolutely gorgeous.

This was really tasty. I served it with a green salad and grilled chourico. The flavours worked really well together.

Lovely summery taste. Did them again but used 1 tblsp of honey ,1.5 tblsp of balsamic, olive oil & missed out the mustard. Cherry tomatoes all rolled in the gloop & chucked in red onion & courgette chunks. covered with foil then roasted & served warm. Nice little twust, goes perfectly with the Toulouse sausages receipe I found on the site!

Simple and delicious. I used the dressing ingredients on the tomatoes before I roasted them, which worked very well.
