6-7 ripe tomatoes

2 cloves garlic

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp balsamic vinegar

6-8 fresh basil leaves

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 wholemeal baguette

1/4 cup olive oil


  1. Boil 2 quarts of water over a medium heat, then make shallow cuts into your tomatoes before adding them into the water. Cook for 1 minuted, then remove each tomato with a spoon into a bowl.
  2. Slowly peel off the tomato skins, and remember to cut out the stem as well. Cut into halves and squeeze out most of the juice.
  3. Preheat your oven to 230ºC (450ºF). Then finely dice the tomatoes and mix in the minced garlic, 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, and balsamic vinegar.
  4. Slice the wholemeal baguette on a diagonal, and place all of the pieces onto a tray. Brush one side with olive oil, and toast for 5-6 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Once they’re ready, leave the bread to cool down on a rack (to keep it from getting soggy). After a few minutes, use a spoon to transfer the mixture onto each slice of bread. Don’t forget to season with freshly ground pepper and your favourite sprouts.
