Savoury Tomato Toast
  • 400 grams canned tomatoes (no added salt)
  • ¼ cup reduced fat cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 cup wholegrain breadcrumbs
  • Pepper to season
  • 4 slices wholegrain bread, toasted

Tip: Make your own breadcrumbs by removing the crusts from day-old wholegrain bread slices and cut into cubes. Transfer the cubes to the bowl of a food processor and process until finely chopped. Freeze left over breadcrumbs in a sealable plastic bag and freeze up to three months

  1. Heat tomatoes and juice in small saucepan for five to seven minutes on medium heat.
  2. Stir in breadcrumbs, cheese, dried basil and pepper and simmer for two minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Toast bread and divide tomato mixture between each.
  4. Cut into squares and serve immediately.
