Savoury Tomato Toast 0011 600x583

These super quick tomato toasts are an easy and delicious snack to make for breakfast, lunch or dinner when you're on the go. 

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


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