  1. Start by preparing the tomatoes. Wash them under running water and dry them carefully with a cloth or paper towel.

  5. Cover the dish with a lid or microwave-safe cling film , sealing tightly.
  6. Set your microwave oven to "Crisp" mode and cook the cherry tomatoes for about 20 minutes , checking from time to time to prevent them from burning. Cooking times may vary, depending a lot on the power of your microwave and the size of the vegetables, so be careful during preparation.
