Well I promised to post a lovely Saturday lunch recipe yesterday, but I got so carried away with the sunny day that I clear forgot! Here it follows though…..good for a Sunday supper or a mid-week quick snack!….

Ems’ Bloody Mary Tomatoes on Toast

Ems' Bloody Mary Tomatoes on Toast

Ingredients (1 serving):

  • 6(ish) cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 dessert spoon olive oil
  • 1 dessert spoon worcestershire sauce
  • 2 dessert spoons vodka
  • 1 pinch vanilla salt (or rock salt if you can’t get the vanilla kind)
  • 2 pinches black pepper
  • a few sprigs fresh thyme or basil (dried herbs if you don’t have fresh are fine), chopped
  • 1 slice granary bread / ciabatta, toasted
  • 1 small clove of garlic, peeled

To make:

  1. Mix together the oil, worcestershire sauce and vodka to make a sort of marinade for the tomatoes.
  2. Mix the tomatoes in with the marinade and pop in the fridge for at least half an hour (or overnight if you can).
  3. Toast your bread of choice on both sides.
  4. Remove the tomatoes from the marinade (but keep it), place on a baking sheet and sprinkle over the salt, pepper and herbs.
  5. Grill the tomatoes.
  6. Rub the garlic over the toasted bread on one side.
  7. Remove the tomatoes when nicely toasted and pop them onto your toast… can also drizzle over the marinade if you like too. Done!

Hope you enjoy!
