grilled honey + thyme tomatoes on toast

This week, we’re looking forward to tomatoes with a simple salad recipe and a quick-fix tomatoes on toast recipe.


Grilled Honey and Thyme Tomatoes on Toast


Serves 2

Tomatoes on toast is such simple and effective comfort food.


3 tomatoes

2 sprigs of thyme

1 tablespoon of olive oil

4 slices of bread, for toast

2 tablespoons of ricotta or cream cheese



1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon honey


Pre-heat your grill to a high heat.

Slice the tomatoes into thick rounds and place on a baking tray.

Pick the leaves from the thyme sprigs and scatter over the tomatoes. Drizzle with olive oil and place under the grill for about 3 to 4 minutes, or until starting to blacken and sizzle. Carefully flip over the tomatoes to grill the other side for a further 3 minutes.

Meanwhile toast your bread and spread with your ricotta (or cream cheese, if using).

Take the tomatoes from the oven and transfer to the slices of toast. Add generous a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Top each toast with a splash of balsamic and a drizzle of honey. Serve with some fresh thyme if you like.
