Haribo sweets that were problematic in the dim distant past nor anything of those other things that are well known naughty temptresses such as chocolate, crisps or chips. What I'm finding it hard to resist at the moment is incredibly cheap, surprisingly healthy and is super quick to knock up from scratch. I'm hooked on my own take of that old Meditteranean classic, bruschetta. Pan am oli, as they say on the Meditteranean island of Mallorca. Or for those of us who are Brits through and through, tomatoes on toast.
Just lightly toast some really good bread. It would normally be home produced here in the breadmaker but -I've been using some rather passable sourdough that I've got in the freezer at the moment. There were a few marked down loaves at the Coop recently which I snapped up. Meanwhile quickly fry some chopped tomatoes in a glug of extra virgin olive oil. Once the toast is cooked, rub it with a sliced clove of garlic and then tip the contents of the frying pan over it, juices and all. Season with a bit of freshly ground salt and pepper. The result? Simple but thoroughly tasty heaven on a plate!
