  • 750g cherry tomatoes
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves , peeled and halved
  • 24 asparagus spears
  • a handful of black olives , stoned and chopped

Method

  • STEP 1

    Preheat the oven to fan 180C/conventional 200C/gas 6. Spread the tomatoes out on a large baking tray and prick each one with a fork. Sprinkle with olive oil, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and scatter with the garlic. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes.

Sprinkle with the olives before serving warm or at room temperature. Vegetables can be done up to two hours before serving and kept at room temperature.
