Anchoïade toasts with roasted tomatoes and capsicum


Anchoïade is an addictive Niçoise spread that keeps well in the fridge and can be used in countless ways. Slathering it over hot toast is a great way to enjoy it, and it makes an excellent dip for crudités such as fresh witlof leaves.

You'll need

600 gm assorted small tomatoes on the truss 2 tbsp olive oil 2 red capsicum 1 full-length sourdough baguette, split lengthways, then crossways To serve: wild rocket or dandelion salad   Anchoïade 3 egg yolks 2 small garlic cloves, crushed Juice of ½ lemon 320 ml olive oil 90 gm anchovy fillets, rinsed, patted dry and chopped

Method

  • 01
  • For anchoïade, process egg yolks, garlic and lemon juice in a blender until smooth, then gradually add olive oil in a thin steady stream until incorporated and mixture is thick (be careful, mixture will split if oil iss added too quickly). Blend in anchovy a little at a time until smooth, then season with black pepper and refrigerate.
