Vegan Oven Roasted/Oven Dried Cherry Tomatoes & Herbs Bread

Am a great fan of sun dried tomatoes, i never forget to get them whenever i feeling like cooking with them. I really want to make my batch of sun dried tomatoes at home but unfortunately Sun god is very rare here. Cherry tomatoes are very cheap here, hence i decided to make some dried tomatoes finally i opted to make my batch of dried tomatoes at home by oven drying. This method may take few hours to dry the cherry tomatoes but this method is truly worth to make dried tomatoes at home easily.Since ever i tried this method of oven dried cherry tomatoes, i do make them quite often. If you want to make oven dried tomatoes at home, do check my link here and i even prepared an alluring pesto using oven dried cherry tomatoes.My today's post goes for oven dried cherry tomatoes and mixed herbs bread. This bread was in my draft as well, finally am posting this incredible savoury bread today.

Oven roasted cherry tomatoes & herbs bread

This savoury bread tastes excellent with grilled meat or salad or else simply as an accompaniment to have along with your favourite dips.This bread is completely egg free,butterfree and obviously vegan as well. The mixed herbs i used in this bread gives an excellent aroma to this simple bread. Instead of making a simple loaf, i juste braided them to serve along with some herbed cream cheese and grilled chicken wings for our dinner and we had a super filling dinner. If you dont have oven roasted tomatoes, you can simply use tomato puree or oven roasted fresh tomatoes to make this fantastic vegan bread. This savoury bread goes for this month's Mega blogging marathon with Baking as theme.

It takes a while to sun dry the tomatoes, though i have done them. Using them in bresds and other bakes is a total treat! And the bread looks absolutely fantastic.
