Slow Roasted Tomatoes with Tasmanian Pepper Salt, Creamy Blue Cheese Bruschetta

Such a great, easy recipe full of robust flavours yet still light to eat.

 To serve 4 (as entrée)

For the Tomatoes

8 ripe Roma tomatoes, halved lengthways

½ cup olive oil

1 teaspoon Outback Spirit Tasmanian Pepper Salt (or more depending on your taste!)

Outback Spirit Pepperberry to taste (or cracked black pepper)

Dash of Tabasco

1 teaspoon castor sugar

Creamy blue cheese (you could substitute goat’s cheese or brie if you prefer)


For the Bruschetta

1 dessertspoon Outback Spirit Crushed Garlic

½ cup olive oil

1 long French stick cut into 16 rounds


Preheat oven to 150 C.

Line a baking tray and lay tomatoes face up on the tray and drizzle with the oil.


Sprinkle the tomatoes generously with the Outback Spirit Tasmanian Pepper Salt, a little Pepperberry (or cracked pepper),  and a dash of Tabasco Sauce over them.  Sprinkle the castor sugar over the tomatoes.


Slow roast the tomatoes 1  -1½ hours. They should be very soft, with a little charring.


To make the bruschetta, mix the  crushed garlic with the olive oil and brush both sides of the bread. Toast in the oven until golden brown and very crisp.


Top each bruschetta with a good spread of the blue cheese and top with the roasted tomatoes  and serve.
