Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of fresh mint, roughly chopped (save a few sprigs to garnish)
  • 1 medium-hot green chilli, roughly chopped
  • ½ a garlic bulb
  • 1 heaped tsp Maldon sea salt
  • 10-20ml rapeseed oil, plus more to drizzle
  • 4 slices of sourdough bread
  • A little mint adjika
  • 4 tbsp labneh (or strained greek yogurt)
  • 2-3 ripe plums, sliced

Method

  1. Pop the mint, chill and peeled garlic cloves into a powerful food processor with the sea salt. With the motor running, trickle in the oil and whizz it just enough to blend it properly into a fine paste.
  2. Toast the sourdough bread (once toasted, cut them into smaller pieces if serving as a canapé). Brush a little mint adjika over each piece of toast and top generously with labneh and slices of plum. Scatter over the reserved mint sprigs and drizzle over a little more oil to serve.

  1. Mint adjika is intensely minty, spicy and salty; only a tiny little brush will give your food a strong yet subtle flavour boost.
