Units Scale

Roasted Tomatoes:

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Marinated Red Onions (optional):

  • 1 small red onion, sliced on level 1 of the mandolin
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons white distilled vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons date syrup
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt

The Toast:

  • 2 pieces of toast
  • 1/2 large avocado, sliced
  • marinated onions - use a forkful per piece of toast
  • drizzle of good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 handful microgreens
  • date syrup (thin drizzle)
  • runny tahini (thin drizzle)
  • hemp hearts (for sprinkling)
  • flaky salt (for sprinkling)


  1. Roast the tomatoes. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Pour olive oil to a small cast iron skillet or baking sheet. Add cherry tomatoes and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Roast for 10 minutes until the tomatoes start to wrinkle.
  2. Marinate the onions (optional). While the tomatoes roast, thinly slice the red onion using a mandolin (level 1) and toss in a small bowl with olive oil, white distilled vinegar, date syrup and salt. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes, tossing halfway.
  3. Build the toast. Layer the sliced avocado, roasted tomatoes and marinated onions onto slices of toasted bread.
  4. Garnish. Top with microgreens and thin drizzles of olive oil, date syrup and tahini. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and hemp hearts, if using.
  5. Serve immediately. Enjoy while the roasted tomatoes are still warm for best results.
