These baked cinnamon and allspice tomatoes are one of the easiest summer eats I make. I serve them simply with some chilli and herb baked feta cheese, some quick yoghurt flatbreads and some chilled wine or lemon iced tea.
Seriously, there is nothing better than biting into some warm bread, wrapped round the spiced tomatoes, as the juices run down your arms. Infact the kiddoes relish the chance to get as messy as they can eating these. Or is that just me?
