Olive oil, for brushing and drizzling
6 tomatoes, thickly sliced
4 thick slices soda bread
Balsamic vinegar, for drizzling
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Shavings of Parmesan cheese, to serve


Serves: 4


1. Brush a griddle pan with olive oil and heat. Add the tomato slices and cook for 4-6 minutes, turning once, until softened and slightly blackened. Alternatively, heat a grill (broiler) to high and line the rack with foil. Grill (broil) the tomato slices for 4-6 minutes, turning once, until softened.

2. Meanwhile, lightly toast the soda bread. Place the tomatoes on top of the toast and drizzle each portion with a little olive oil and vinegar. Season to taste and serve immediately with thin shavings of Parmesan.

COOK'S TIP:- Using a griddle pan reduces the amount of oil required for cooking the tomatoes and gives them a barbecued flavour.
