Moroccan Tomato Toast
Something as simple as crushed coriander seeds and a hit of honey can bring an already good tomato to greatness. Spoon this mixture onto day-old toasted bread—thick or thin—over a bowl of plain Yogurt, fish, a fried egg ... you get the idea. Its better than salsa, in my opinion, but just as versatile.
- 1 cup (140 g) finely chopped red onion
- 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
- 1/4 tsp fresh coriander seeds
- 4 slices thick-cut sourdough bread
- Butter, for the bread
- 2 cups (280 g) chopped in-season tomatoes
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp flaky sea salt, such as Maldon
- Fresh flowering or young herbs, such as cilantro, chopped
- Light honey, such as wildflower, for drizzling
Soak the onion in a bowl of ice water to take out the bite, 5 to 10 minutes.
Toast the cumin and coriander in a dry skillet over high heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Smash slightly on a cutting board with the bottom of your (cooled) skillet, or with the back of your knife.
Toast the bread. Spread the toast with a thin schmear of butter or drizzle of oil.
Drain the onion well. Toss the cumin and coriander, onion, tomatoes, oil, and salt together in a bowl. Stir in the herbs. Spoon over the toast and drizzle very lightly with a bit of honey.
