Ingredients

  • 600g Jack Hawkins tomatoes (about 3), at room temperature
  • 25g pack basil
  • 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • 150ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 150g burrata (or mozzarella)

Method

  1. Slice the tomatoes into horizontal rounds, then sprinkle with a little salt and set aside. Tear most of the basil into a blender, reserving a few leaves, and add the garlic; season then pour in the oil. Whizz briefly, until you have a vibrant green oil. Put the tomatoes on a platter, tear over the burrata (or mozzarella), drizzle over the oil and finish with the reserved basil leaves.

Cook’s tip

The basil oil can also be tossed through warm new potatoes and spinach, cooked pasta or a tomato and avocado salad.
