Air Fryer Tomatoes

Tomatoes must be one of my favourite foods ever. Or I should say just give me any fresh tomato and I am HAPPY. I love the taste and the smell especially when tomatoes are still on the vine.

Dominic rolls his eyes as I walk around the supermarket and sniff the tomatoes and insist on getting the more expensive tomato just because it smells better.

Then I will have them in the front of the car with me and will have eaten them all before Dominic has driven us home.

If they do make it home, they will be sprinkled with salt, pepper and oregano and cooked in the air fryer.

They can then be paired with a full English Breakfast, a side for your steak and chips, as a breakfast when you follow the Whole30 or Paleo, or just as a healthy snack.

I like them no matter what shape of size my tomatoes come in. I love cherry tomatoes and eat them like others eat a packet of crisps. No wonder then that I have another recipe for air fryer cherry tomatoes.

Can You Roast Tomatoes In Air Fryer?

Yes you can air fry tomatoes.

I often get asked this because people are always shocked when I talk about how often I put some tomatoes in the air fryer.

You can also cook cherry tomatoes, grilled tomatoes or roasted tomatoes in the air fryer.

The choice is yours.

Air Fryer Grilled Tomatoes

My favourite thing about the air fryer is the simplicity. The fact that you can just lightly season some food, place it in the air fryer and then let it cook. Then when it beeps serve it.

There is absolutely no oil involved in my grilled tomatoes in the air fryer. You literally slice them in half, season them and air fry.

You can also do a big batch of them or cook them at the same time as other food.

How Long Do Roasted Tomatoes Keep?

Once you have roasted your tomatoes in the air fryer, you can keep them in the fridge for 3 days. BUT roasted tomatoes taste best when they are still warm, so I recommend you air fry your tomatoes as and when you plan to eat them.

Or you can roast the tomatoes first in the air fryer and then use them in our speed soup, or our instant pot tomato soup.

How Do You Grill Tomatoes In The Air Fryer?

air fryer tomatoes step by step

Cooking roasted tomatoes in the air fryer is one of the EASIEST EVER air fryer recipes.

  1. Chop tomatoes in half and load into the air fryer.
  2. Season.
  3. Air fry.
  4. Serve.

I bet you wish all air fryer recipes were that easy. You can also use any medium to large tomato with this method and they will be perfect every single time.

Are Roasted Tomatoes Healthy?

Yes they are. They are so healthy that these tomatoes would be plant based, vegan, gluten free, paleo and Whole30 approved.

You can binge all day on these roasted tomatoes and know that you are getting a big boost of natural vitamins.
