Method:

Oven-roasted tomatoes: Preheat oven to 180 °C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Place rosa and cherry tomatoes on the baking tray in a single layer. Sprinkle coarse salt over. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until cooked and almost dried, but still holding their shape.

Caprese: Place oven-roasted tomatoes with any pan juices, avocado oils and rosemary in a bowl and mix through. Add fresh tomatoes and cheese to the oven-roasted tomatoes and toss through gently.

Marinate tomato mixture for about 10-15 minutes.

Place avocados cut side down on a large platter or individual plates and fan slightly. Top with tomato mixture and fresh basil.

Season with salt and a grind of black pepper and drizzle with the remaining tomato marinade. Serve as a starter, salad, side dish or part of a festive meal.

Tips

Westfalia Garlic Flavoured Avocado Oil will also be delicious in this recipe. Substitute 15 ml (1 tbsp) of the plain avocado oil with garlic-flavoured avocado oil.

When fresh avocados aren’t available, enjoy the tomato mixture with dollops of Westfalia Plain Guacamole.

The tomato mixture and avocado will be delicious as part of a brunch or breakfast. Enjoy with eggs and toasted ciabatta.
