Roasted tomatoes make such a simple dish that work wonderfully as a warm addition to any salad or on their own. And the best part is they look amazing with very little effort! A huge bonus of cooking tomatoes is that the absorption and assimilation of the lycopene content in tomatoes is improved through heat (the heat liberates three times more lycopene from the plant’s tissue and adding the oil improves the absorption!). The antioxidant lycopene has been shown to improve bone health, support prostrate health and protects the skin from sun damage by up to 35%. If you’re looking for a simple, satisfying addition to your next meal, make these. It’s easy, I promise!
