RUSTIC TOMATO TOAST

4 servings / 1 serving = 1 piece whole grain toast

Final-CHEF-Stamp-KNOCKED-OUT_33INGREDIENTS

  • 2 large heirloom or vine-ripened tomatoes
  • Small handful of fresh herbs such as thyme, parsley, and oregano (about ¼ cup)
  • Coarse sea salt & black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 slices ¾” thick country-style whole grain bread OR 4 slices of standard whole grain sandwich bread
  • Olive oil spray (optional, for grilling bread)
  • 4 Tablespoons softened cream cheese or Ricotta cheese, drained

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Prepare tomatoes: slice tomatoes about ¼” thick and lay on a large plate. Chop fresh herbs and sprinkle on top of tomato.  Season with coarse sea salt, black pepper and the olive oil. Set aside.
  2. Toast bread.  If grilling, prepare grill for medium-low heat.
    Spray bread on both sides with olive oil spray. Grill until lightly browned, about 2 minutes on each side.
  3. Remove bread from the grill and place on a serving platter. Spread about 1 Tablespoon cream cheese or Ricotta cheese on each slice and top with slices of tomato. Drizzle some of the remaining juice over the tomatoes and serve.

Note: A hearty, rustic whole grain bread is best for grilling. The slices should be thick enough to withstand the heat. If using sandwich bread, toasting  in a toaster or toaster oven is best.
