I served toast with tomatoes and feta for today’s lunch. I still managed to collect a few cocktail tomatoes from my vegetable garden and I suspect that I will end this year’s tomato season with them. I still see a few more tomatoes on the plants, but I’m not sure if they will be good to eat, because the constant rain causes them to be attacked by diseases. The tomatoes I collected this season were used to create several delicious dishes, such as risotto, soup and salad. I also ate my cocktail tomatoes fresh and baked.
The recipe for toasts with tomatoes and feta that I am sharing with you below is one of many recipes for which I used homegrown tomatoes. The basis of these toasts is bread, in this case tomato sourdough bread. After being drizzled with olive oil and toasted in a pan, the bread is covered with ajvar paste, on which baked tomatoes and feta cheese are placed. The whole thing is sprinkled with chopped basil leaves and seasoned with pepper. These crispy toasts can be successfully served not only for lunch. Toasts with tomatoes and feta are fantastic as a snack that can be served during the day and as a dish served for breakfast and dinner.
