  • Slices of thick white or brown bread
  • 80g Primula Cheese with chives
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 300g fresh plum tomatoes
  • 2 Spring onions – peeled and finely sliced
  • 50g black olives - finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil – finely chopped
  • Salt & black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Garnish : fresh basil leaves


1 Cut the bread into 12 heart shaped slices.

2 Brush one side of each heart with the olive oil and place oiled side up under a preheated hot grill until golden brown. Allow to cool.

3 In the meantime, skin the plum tomatoes by cutting a small cross in the base of each tomato and place them into a bowl. Pour boiling water over the tomatoes to cover them and leave to blanch for 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon take the tomatoes out of the hot water, allow to cool. When cool enough to handle, gently peel off the tomato skins.

4 Cut out the stem base and cut into quarters, squeeze out the juice and the seeds and chop the tomatoes into ¼” dice. Drain on kitchen paper.

5 Place the chopped tomatoes, chopped olives, sliced spring onions and chopped Basil into a mixing bowl and season well.

6 Cut the garlic clove in half and rub garlic on to each slice of toasted baguette, then pipe each slice with the cheese around the edge of the bread. Lay the slices on to a serving dish.

7 Spoon the tomato mixture on to the slices and garnish with extra Basil leaves.
