    • 100ml extra virgin olive oil
    • 100ml milk
    • 300g pack cherry vine tomatoes, halved

    2. Reserve half the cherry tomatoes for the topping, then mix the other half into the flour mixture with the Emmental, feta and half the basil.
    3. Tip the mixture into the loaf tin and level it with the back of a spoon. Lightly press the remaining tomatoes, cut side up into the top of the loaf. Bake for 40-45 minutes until golden brown and risen. Rest in the tin for 5-10 minutes, before lifting out and slicing.
    4. Meanwhile, for the soup, place the sauce, artichokes and beans in a food processor and whizz for 1-2 minutes or until coarsely chopped.
    5. Transfer to a pan and add 300ml cold water. Bring just to the boil, stirring. Ladle into bowls, top with the remaining basil and serve with slices of warm bread for dipping.
