Air Fryer Roasted Tomatoes

Fresh tomatoes, air fryer roasted with onions and whole garlic cloves tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper and blended. Perfect for pasta dishes but use anywhere you would use diced tomatoes or puree them for a more sauced version.

Air Fryer Roasted Tomatoes


Fall has "officially" arrived, though it does take a while to effect any change here in the Deep South. I mean, as we speak, there's a potential hurricane threatening the Gulf Coast!

Regardless, one thing is for certain, we're getting to the end of local and backyard tomato season.

Though he loves the sauces and casseroles I make with them, The Cajun is not a big fan of fresh, raw tomatoes and he wouldn't dream of a tomato sandwich! Me, I love them and I enjoy them with many meals, including simply sliced with a little salt and pepper, even alongside my breakfast eggs.

I'm interrupting the post here to remind you that this is a blog, not just a "recipe site," and yes, there is a difference! I want to first thank all of you who have supported my work over the years, but if you aren't interested in the chit chat, info, photos, tips and such in a post, as always, you'll find the complete recipe text with measurements and instructions, as well as a printable document, a little bit further down the page. Just swipe or scroll down to the bottom of the post!

If you haven't had a sauce made from fresh tomatoes that's one thing, but roast those tomatoes, and you really you don't know what you're missing. What a difference it makes!

And y'all... it's also a great way to enhance those out of season, hothouse tomatoes that we have to tolerate through the winter too.

Ideally, a slow roasting low temperature method enhances the flavor of tomatoes even more, but I found that you can get pretty deep flavor from a quick roast too and what better method appliance for that than an air fryer?

And the beauty of it, is that you can use wrinkled, sad tomatoes that you might have otherwise pitched because you didn't use them up quick enough or they got temporarily overlooked! 

As much as I love tomatoes and eat them a lot and in many different ways, this happens. They are perfect candidates for roasting!


Despite being not so pretty on the outside, they're still perfectly good tomatoes y'all!


Combine them with onion and whole, peeled garlic cloves and drizzle with oil.


Preheat air fryer to 370 degrees F. Place tomato mixture in air fryer basket in a single layer, or trays for an oven style air fryer as pictured here. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.


Roast in batches, if necessary, for 12 to 15 minutes, depending on size of tomatoes and wattage of your air fryer, shaking basket or swapping trays halfway.


Remove and set aside to cool slightly.


I like using the oven style air fryers because there's enough room to put everything in all at once instead of batches that a basket syle would require and all I have to do is swap out the trays halfway.


Transfer to a food processor or blender and pulse to desired consistency.


This makes about 2 cups.


Transfer to freezer containers (I like Freshware) leaving a little head room for expansion, or use in recipes that call for either diced, sauced or pureed tomatoes. Since I'm putting these up in the freezer, I left this one a little chunky.
