Quick, easy and delicious. This makes a speedy starter but could equally do for lunch.

Mozzarella bruschetta with rocket drizzle


  1. 1 small olive ciabatta loaf, cut into 12 x 1cm thick slices
  2. 1 small garlic clove
  3. 25g rocket leaves
  4. 1 tbsp toasted flaked almonds
  5. 1 red chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped
  6. 2 tbsp olive oil
  7. Juice of ½ lemon
  8. 375g buffalo mozzarella, roughly torn


  1. 1. Toast the ciabatta slices lightly under a medium grill or in a griddle for 2 minutes on each side until nicely browned.
  2. 2. Meanwhile, whizz the garlic, rocket, almonds and chilli using a hand-held blender or in a mini food processor to form a coarse paste. Add the olive oil and lemon juice, then whizz again, adding enough water to make a pourable dressing. Season to taste with salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
  3. 3. Arrange the mozzarella on top of the toasts, drizzle over the rocket dressing, then serve.

Tasted great. I put some pearls of balsamic vinegar on top which just lifted the flavour
