Roasted tomatoes and avocado on toast


This recipe requires few ingredients and little preparation so is perfect after a long day. Ripe tomatoes, avocado and salad leaves on toast make a great vegetarian combination, but you can it top with smoked salmon too if you like.

Heat the grill to medium-hot and grill the tomatoes for 20 minutes until soft. Toast the bread.

Using a fork, mash the avocado with lemon juice and cayenne pepper, then spread it over the toasted bread. Top with the tomatoes and some cress or baby rocket leaves and smoked salmon, if using.
