Roasted Tomatoes and Cipollini
Serves four as a small dish, two as a main
1 pound cipollini onions
1 pound small Roma or large cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
4 slices of country or ciabatta bread, one-inch thick (I didnít bother using the bread.)
1 15-ounce can of white beans, drained and rinsed or 1 1/2 cups cooked beans of your choice
Garlic clove (optional)
Few fresh basil leaves, slivered
Preheat oven to 375įF. Boil a small pot of water and blanche the cipollini for 10 seconds, then plunging them into cold water. Use a paring knife to make a small slit in each, and slide them out of their skins and outer layer.
Spread peeled onions and tomatoes in a roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil and a few good pinches of coarse salt. Toss everything together until well-coated and roast in preheated oven for about 45 minutes, reaching in every 15 minutes with a spatula to roll the tomatoes and onions around to ensure all sides get blistered.
Just before you take the tomatoes and onions out, place your bread slices on the oven rack (or a tray, if youíre more refined than us) and let them toast lightly. You can rub the toasts with a halved garlic clove, if you like, while still hot. Use tongs to arrange toasts in one layer on a serving platter. Dump the white beans over the bread, and using a pot holder, scrape the entire contents of the tomato-and-onion roasting pan, still hot, over the white beans. Do not skimp on the juices that have collected, all of them ó donít leave any in the pan. They could make a religious person out of you.
Sprinkle the dish with the basil and eat at once.

- oh my! I think I would serve it as a spread for the toasts instead of dumping it all on top. love - AngAk1 - 5:50pm on 08/29/14
