Claire Wright from shares an easy way to get some veg into everyone at breakfast-time: veg on toast, like these sweet-tooth tomatoes on toast.


Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Place the tomatoes in a roasting dish and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Season with salt & pepper and roast in the oven for about 15 mins, until the cherry tomatoes start “popping” (or regular tomatoes soften) and are soft and blistered. Toast the bread and drizzle with the rest of the olive oil. Rub each slice of toast with garlic (if using). Top with the roasted tomatoes and basil leaves.

Kids in the kitchen:

Let the kids put the tomatoes in the dish, drizzle the oil, season and toss it all together. They can toast the bread and drizzle with olive oil, and they can rub the garlic on if using.
