Why we love it
Is there anything more delightful than these tiny delicious cherry tomatoes full of flavor exploding with taste in your mouth? I think not! And when you roast them in the air fryer, you get to a whole new combination of tart and sweet that you can’t help falling in love with.
With the air fryer, you can have perfectly roasted cherry tomatoes in just minutes. You can also use this recipe to make roasted cherry tomatoes in the oven, but I find the air fryer with its timer more convenient.
Now, the one big recommendation I would have with roasting cherry tomatoes in the air fryer is to use an oven-friendly bowl to put the tomatoes in, into the air fryer. Otherwise you risk losing all those wonderful cherry tomato juices at the bottom of your air fryer, rather than in your plate.
I also like to add some herbs, olive oil, and salt and pepper in it, to just give it that added oomph. The hot air circulating around the tomatoes creates a crispy exterior while the heat caramelizes the natural sugars in the tomatoes, giving them an extra burst of sweetness.

You can easily prepare these air fryer roasted tomatoes in advance, and leave them at room temperature for a few hours or in the fridge.
When ready to eat, you can eat them as is, or put them back in the air fryer at 380°F (190°C) for 5 minutes to make them warm again, or serve them at room temperature.
