Spring is sneaking in and Tomato Toast is on the menu

Tomato Toast Fiber Points 9+

I love this recipe; it’s so simple, and you can add various herbs and seeds to boost the diversity of something so simple. 

Sourdough bread (to get the fiber points) or a nice bloomer. You want bread that has a good surface area when you slice it. If you are buying bread with a shelf life of more than 48 hours, you don’t get points for that – there are too many unhelpful ingredients that counteract any benefits (i.e. if it’s got an ingredients list that is not flour, water, salt). 

Tomatoes sliced (approx 1/2 cm thick)

Leaf – spinach, rocket, and fresh basil leaves are my favourite

Shallots finely sliced

Garlic oil (I crush some garlic cloves into olive oil and keep them ready to use in the fridge)

Dried herbs of your choice

Seeds of your choice – sesame and pine nuts go really well with this

Cayenne pepper or chillies if you like a bit of heat

Black pepper & sea salt


Under the grill, toast one side of your bread. Then, on the untoasted side, spread your garlic oil (butter would be fine too), add a layer of your leaves, then the onion and sliced tomatoes, season with herbs, spices, salt and pepper, and put under the grill for a few mins until the tomato starts to soften. Then add the seeds (if you add them too soon, they will burn before your tomato is cooked) and pop back under the grill for a minute or 2. Watch those sesame seeds; they go from just toasting to burning in the blink of an eye!

If you are feeling fancy, you could add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar!
