Gently heat some olive oil in a small frying pan and fry the halved tomatoes skin-side down; now put the sourdough on to toast.

Meanwhile blitz the drained beans with a bit of salt and a glug of olive oil, use a mini blender or just go at them with a fork.

Once the toast and toms are done, spread the toast with the bean smash and and add the tomatoes. Scatter with sesame seeds, black pepper and fresh basil.
