5 minutes
20 minutes

"These tomatoes are so good, you don’t even have to put them on toast. They're also great in a warm salad with cold, torn mozzarella and loads of croutons.”- Hannah Lewry

  • For the grilled tomatoes:
  • 400 g Woolworths mixed tomatoes
  • 6 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 50 g capers
  • 4-6 anchovies
  • 1 T red wine vinegar
  • 1 t sugar
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2–3 T olive oil
  • 1–2 fresh chillies, chopped
  • 1 Woolworths seeded baguette, halved lengthways
  • 1 x 150 g tub Woolworths fior di latte mozzarella
  • fresh basil, torn
  • mixed olives, for serving

1. Preheat the oven’s grill to high. Toss the tomatoes with all the ingredients and place on a baking tray. Place under the grill with the oven’s door slightly ajar. Grill for 15–20 minutes, tossing occasionally.

2. Brush the cut side of the baguette with olive oil and place cut-side down on a preheated griddle pan. Grill until slightly charred and toasted.

3. Serve the baguette with the grilled tomatoes, tear over the mozzarella and pour over the warm pan juices. Scatter over the basil and serve warm with the olives.
