Tomato and Burrata Sourdough Toast - the easiest and most delicious breakfast or snack for any time of the day. A decadent toast, reminiscent of the ones found in Europe, that only takes minutes to prepare.
Hello from Boston! In a quick sentence this has been our Boston vacation: eat.nap.eat.sleep.walk around a lot.stop to eat.nap some more.eat again.and again.and again.and now have some dessert.and then sleep.wake up and repeat.
I'd like to say that this is exactly how I like to travel. Maybe I could have pulled myself away from a few coffee shops and weaned it down to two, but then what's the point of restriction while on vacation? Instead, I made a pact with myself - eat and do how I please while on vacation and then when I'm home, eat out on occasion and cook from my home for most meals. I think that's a pretty nice deal. So how about you? Do you do this too?
Now to the toast. While in Spain last month I learned a little trick for flavoring toast. Take a cube of garlic, cut it in half, rub it all over the toast and then do the same with a slice of tomato. This way the garlic and tomato flavor the toast in a beautifully delicate way - very aromatic. So here you go, have at it. Can't wait to be home and make this one again!
Serves: 5 slices
Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes
Ingredients for the Tomato and Burrata Sourdough Toast:
- 1 loaf olive and sourdough bread (or any of your choice)
- 6 heirloom tomatoes
- 1 bag of burrata cheese (or use cashew cheese if vegan, recipe here)
- handful of fresh basil leaves
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 tablespoons raw hemp seeds
- sea salt & pepper
- olive oil
Either grill or toast the slices of bread. Then take a fresh garlic clove, cut it in half, and rub the clove all over the top of the sliced bread. Then take one of the tomatoes, cut it in half, and rub the tomato (with its juices and seeds) all over the garlic toast. This is a way of flavoring the toast even more.
Now simply add slices of tomato to each toast, sprinkle with hemp seeds, olive oil, salt, pepper and top with fresh basil leaves. Enjoy!
