Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Tomatoes – The best choice is to use late summer or early autumn tomatoes when they are plentiful and at their peak. Roma or heirloom tomatoes are my top picks, but you can use any tomatoes you have in your fridge.
  • Olive oil – You only need a tablespoon of good quality olive oil.
  • Seasoning – Simple seasonings like salt, freshly ground black pepper, garlic granules, and dried thyme are my favorites for flavoring these air fryer roasted tomatoes. You can use your favorite seasonings and herbs, and adjust the amounts to suit your taste.

How to Make Air Fryer Roasted Tomatoes?

Important Note

Before you start cooking, note that times may differ among air fryers. I develop my recipes using a Cosori 6.8 air fryer. If you’re using a different air fryer, view my recipes as a general guide and tweak the cooking time—add a bit more or cook slightly less as needed.

Making these Air Fryer Roasted Tomatoes is very easy. However, you need to follow a few simple steps to achieve the best results :

Start by giving your tomatoes a good rinse and patting them dry, slice them in half.

Quick Tip!

If you want to use cherry or grape tomatoes, leave them whole and reduce the cooking time to 6-7 minutes.

Drizzle your tomatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and any additional seasonings you’re using. Toss them gently to ensure they’re evenly coated.

Set your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) and place your seasoned tomatoes in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Don’t overcrowd them, do it in batches if necessary.

Air fry the tomatoes for 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them towards the end of the cooking time to avoid overcooking or burning.

Expert Tips From the Chef

  • Don’t Skip the Oil: A little olive oil helps the tomatoes roast evenly and prevents them from drying out.
  • Season Generously: Tomatoes love salt, so don’t be afraid to season them well. This intensifies their natural sweetness and brings out their full flavor.
  • Experiment with Different Herbs and Spices: Don’t limit yourself to just salt and pepper. Italian seasoning, and fresh herbs like basil or parsley can add incredible depth to your roasted tomatoes.
  • Check for Doneness: Keep an eye on your tomatoes as they cook. They should be slightly shriveled and caramelized but not burnt.

Using Your Roasted Tomatoes

Homemade Sauces

Blend your roasted tomatoes into a smooth sauce for pasta, pizza, or even as a base for soups and stews. Add some fresh garlic, onion, and herbs to create a rich, flavorful sauce that beats anything you can buy in a store.

Use your roasted tomatoes as a side dish for Air Fryer Chicken Patties, Air Fryer Marinated Salmon, Juicy Air Fryer Chicken Breasts, or Air Fryer Meatballs.

Layer your roasted tomatoes in sandwiches or wraps for an extra punch of flavor. They work well with almost any filling, from grilled chicken to hummus and roast turkey.

Air fryer roasted tomatoes are also a great addition to your English breakfast when served along with Air Fryer Hash Browns from Scratch, Air Fryer Sausage Links, Air Fryer Toast, and Soft or Hard Boiled Air Fryer Eggs.

Toss your roasted tomatoes with pasta, quinoa, or rice. They add a burst of flavor and a lovely pop of color to any dish. Try adding some fresh basil, a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, and a drizzle of balsamic glaze for a simple yet delicious meal.

Storing and Reheating

If you have leftovers (though it’s hard to imagine with something this tasty!), store your roasted tomatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. You can also freeze them for up to 6 months for longer storage.

Reheat them in the air fryer for a few minutes to bring back their original texture and flavor.
