The Ultimate Tomatoes on Toast

I guess on the surface tomatoes on toast is a bit of an odd concept, but it totally works. Perfect for a quick, easy and delicious brunch, even better for an after work/school snack when the craving hits. We’ll get to the avocado part in just a sec, but first things first let’s talk tomatoes. More specifically:

Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

The only thing more glorious in this world than cherry tomatoes is roasted cherry tomatoes. By roasting the tomatoes you sweeten and intensify the flavour. You also soften them and collect a gorgeous oily/salty/tomatoey juice in the bottom of the dish, which is nothing short of heaven. For all intents and purposes you can sub baby plum tomatoes, or any other small tomato variety.

Do I have to roast the tomatoes?

You could just half the tomatoes and pop them on raw. BUT, you do miss out on a ton of flavour. Plus you miss out on the heavenly juices left in the baking dish. If you do prefer raw tomatoes, you can use any variety you like, just try and ensure they’re as fresh as possible. But again, I do highly recommend roasting them.

Process shots: add tomatoes, oil & s&p to dish and roast (photo 1), add smashed avo ingredients to bowl (photo 2), lightly smash with a fork (photo 3).

Smashed Avocado

Whilst the roasted tomatoes do hold themselves pretty well, where there’s toast and tomatoes there’s gotta be avocado. It’s just the rules 🤷‍♂️ In with the avocado I recommend adding some fresh basil for a burst of flavour. I also love adding a squeeze of lemon juice to brighten up the dish, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil to turn things silky smooth.

Feta

Last thing you’ll want to add which really takes this toast to new heights is some crumbled feta. The saltiness of the feta balances out the sweetness of the tomatoes and the sharp tones of the lemon.

What bread to use?

I like sourdough, but in reality you can use any bread you fancy. For an extra layer of flavour & texture use seeded bread!

Serving Tomato Avocado Toast

Once you’ve plonked everything on don’t forget the tomatoes juices in the baking dish! Drizzle them over at the end, just for that ‘chefs kiss’ moment 😘 Eat right away whilst the tomatoes and toast are still warm!

Notes:

a) Do I have to roast the tomatoes? - Roasting the tomatoes not only softens them, but it sweetens and intensifies the flavour. You can keep them raw, and just slice in half. BUT you'll miss out of flavour, alongside the yummy leftover juice from when they've roasted.
b) Additions - This toast has the perfect balance of flavours as it is. But if you want to take things a little further a fried egg (or poached egg) is also welcomed, as is crispy bacon.
c) Calories - per slice of toast assuming 1.5 tbsp oil is used in total.
