Ingredients
  • 250g Extra Special Hand Picked Aromatico Tomatoes
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 3tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 sprigs thyme (plus extra to garnish)
  • Extra Special Sourdough Baguette
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 160C/140C Fan/Gas 3.

  • Put the tomatoes on a baking tray with the garlic, olive oil and 6 sprigs of thyme, then toss until evenly coated.

  • Roast in the oven for 45 mins or until the tomatoes are shrinking away from their skins and the garlic is gently roasted.

  • Drain the excess oil into a bowl. Cut the baguette into 2cm-thick slices and drizzle over the oil. Heat a griddle or frying pan over a high setting. When it starts to smoke, fry the sourdough slices for 2-3 mins on each side until crisp and golden with brown char lines.

  • Top the toast with the roasted tomatoes and drizzle over any remaining oil. Garnish with extra thyme sprigs to serve.
