Hot, very buttery toast sits under juicy tomatoes seasoned with basil salt and plenty of black pepper.

This meal is bursting with flavour, not to mention its B vitamins, Vit C, Vit E, Vit A and awesome antioxidant power. It’s also dead easy!

  • real butter
  • tinned tomatoes
  • basil
  • salt (Barts spices) or use some smoked sea salt

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.

Good honest nutrition

There is nothing more depressing than toast that no one eats.
