I was clicking through Pinterest for a few minutes at around 11am one day, came to a photo of a version of this, got up from my computer, went to my kitchen and did my best to recreate it. I was not disappointed! The flavours! Amazing! The colours Fabulous!
While the tomatoes were roasting I made up some hummus, prepped the avo and crumbled some feta. I didn’t have any bread on hand (a loaf in the breadmaker) so I used up some crackers we had left over from Christmas nibblings.

Slice tomatoes, place on baking tray lightly sprayed with vegetable oil spray, drizzle with a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and basil.
