  • good chunky bread, either sourdough or any real bread (no more than flour, water, yeast, salt)
  • real butter
  • tinned tomatoes
  • basil
  • salt (Barts spices) or use some smoked sea salt
  • black pepper


Heat the tomatoes in a saucepan or microwave (microwave 90 secs).

Toast the bread. Spread lots of lovely butter on the toast.

Drain the juice from the tomatoes and chop or leave whole.

Place the tomatoes on the toast.

Season with salt and plenty of black pepper.

Could add chilli flakes if you’re that sort!

Serve with a glass of full fat milk or follow with some greek yoghurt for protein.

Nutrition Info


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.
