You need juicy, flavourful, seasonal, ripe tomatoes for this simply wonderful Spanish dish of ‘tomatoes on bread’. Eat it in the sunshine, drizzled with peppery extra virgin olive oil, even with a few salty anchovies if you like them.
Heat a bit of olive oil in a frying pan and fry the bread on both sides until golden.
Mean time, grate each tomato half over a bowl until you’re just holding the skin on one end (mind yr fingers!). Now add sea salt, grated garlic and a drizzle of olive oil to the tomato pulp.
Rub the fried bread with the cut garlic and top with the tomatoes, black pepper and basil leaves – and the anchovies if using.
Tomatoes are rich in lycopene which is a pokey antioxidant. Antioxidants are like bouncers at a night club, they go around finding stray electrons that are busy causing trouble in your body, and find them a love partner so they can both stay in and cuddle on the sofa.
Tomatoes are also a brilliant source of vitamin C, which supports skin and connective tissue health as well as immunity and iron absorption. The biotin in tomatoes is good for controlling blood sugar.
