Roasted bread with humus and baked tomatoes


A very simple but tasty recipe and an umami explosion without comparison. Tomatoes are a green source for the umami taste, which the backing process is enhancing even more. The recipe can be served as lunch or as a starter (a great alternative to bruschetta).


Serves 1 person (or 2, if served as a starter)



2 slices of bread, e.g. sourdough bread

2 tablespoons of humus (bought or homemade)

250 g small tomatoes with stalks

2-3 tablespoons of olive oil

Fresh thyme

Freshly ground pepper

Sea salt



Preheat the oven to 200°C. Put a piece of baking paper in a small oven dish and add the tomatoes (including the stalks). Sprinkle olive oil, salt and pepper on the tomatoes and bake for approx. 15-20 min.


Roast the bread and spread the humus. Put the tomatoes on top and serve with the fresh thyme, freshly ground pepper and sea salt.
