Spicy oven-dried tomatoes are more than just a topping on your salad. They can add flavor to your roast dish, pizzazz to your pasta, and much more.

3-Ingredient Spicy Oven-Dried Tomatoes

Here’s my favorite recipe for spicy oven-dried tomatoes; you just need three ingredients.

  • Tomatoes (Cherry or Roma Tomatoes)
  • Salt
  • Red crushed chili flakes.


  1. Wash your tomatoes and pat dry them with paper towels or a dish cloth.
  2. Cut the tomatoes in half and place them in a large bowl.
  3. Set oven to 150 degrees Farenheight
  4. In a spice grinder, add the salt and red crushed flakes and blend until coarse.
  5. Sprinkle the mixture over the tomatoes and toss gently.
  6. Place on a tray without overlapping and put it in the oven for 6 hours.
  7. Check after 3 hours and turn.
  8. When the tomatoes are done, they should be firm to the touch and without moisture.
  9. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 4 weeks.


Please note that the type of tomato you use will need different baking times.

You can also use a dehydrator for the task.
