It's finally tomato season.  The farmer's market is bursting with the most beautiful array of heirloom tomatoes & I want to use them on everything.  Besides simple Summer salads & no-cook sauces, toast is my favorite way to eat tomatoes this time of year.  They don't need much, so I try to eat them as purely as possible.  I mean, we have been waiting for these babies all year, right?  For tomorrow's breakfast & even the hottest of days, this toast is your new go-to.

Heirloom Tomato Toasts (Serves 2) Vegan & Gluten-free

  • 4 thick slices bread, toasted
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 3-4 medium sized heirloom tomatoes, sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons hempseeds
  • Flaky sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly cracked pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Once bread is toasted & still warm, rub garlic clove over each slice.  Drizzle with a bit of olive oil, then layer heirloom tomatoes over each toast.

Top each slice with hempseeds, flaky sea salt and freshly cracked pepper.  Drizzle over extra virgin olive oil before serving.
