Roasted tomatoes & creamy tahini yogurt


Prep time: 
10 minutes


Try the moreish combination of hot tomatoes and cold yogurt - and stir tahini through the yogurt to make it rich and nutty. This is a wonderful summer dish


  • 600g mixed heritage or heirloom tomatoes
  • 5 small garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 4 thyme or oregano sprigs
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus an extra drizzle to serve
  • 400g thick Greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • pinch of chilli flakes, such as Aleppo (optional)
  • flatbreads or focaccia, to serve


  1. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Put the tomatoes on a baking tray lined with baking parchment, then scatter over the garlic and thyme, reserving a few thyme leaves. Drizzle with the oil and season with a little salt. Roast for 25-30 mins until the tomatoes have softened but are still holding their shape.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the yogurt with the tahini and ½ tsp sea salt flakes. Chill until needed.
  3. Spread the cold yogurt mixture over a large serving plate. Spoon over the tomatoes, along with the garlic and thyme and pour over the roasting juices. Sprinkle with a pinch of chilli flakes, if you like, and the reserved thyme, then serve with flatbreads or focaccia for scooping everything up.
