Tinned Tomatoes on Toast February 21, 2010

There has been a lot of talk about tinned tomatoes on toast on twitter recently. I must admit I had never heard of this snack, much to the disappointment of my live-in photographer Dan.

 

I thought I would give it a try and it was delicious! I’m pretty sure the original British comfort food is just the tomatoes on white bread, nothing added, but I thought I would give them a little kick with some dried chilli, herbs and confit garlic.

 

They were so good, on some toasted, buttered olive bread, that they gave me a bit of a hankering for other tinned-goods-on-toast. Anyone for spaghetti hoops?

 


 


 

Tinned Tomatoes on Toast


serves 2


1 tin plum tomatoes

1 large clove of garlic, thinly sliced

25g butter

squeeze of tomato paste

large pinch dried chilli flakes

pinch dried oregano

1 tsp sugar

salt

pepper

 

Put the tomatoes and their juice in a small pan with the tomato paste, chilli flakes, oregano, sugar, and seasoning. Bring to a simmer and cook until any harsh tomato taste has gone. But be careful not to break up the tomatoes!

Meanwhile, melt the butter and add the sliced garlic. cook over a low heat for 5 minutes. This will render the garlic melting and sweet, the perfect complement to the tomatoes. Pour the garlic and butter into the tomatoes and mix gently.

Toast a couple of slices of your best bread, and butter lightly. Slop over the tomatoes and eat for breakfast. Yum!
