Sardines on Toast with Mashed Tomatoes

Sardines on Toast with Mashed Tomatoes

In recent years, I have been unable to eat gluten. I have found it difficult to digest and it will give me a stomach ache in the middle of the night if I eat it. In recent months I have been testing myself and eating a little bit of gluten every so often. Then my husband Howard came home with a wholemeal sourdough loaf.

That evening I decided to try a slice with sardines and mashed tomatoes. I have not had sardines on toast in years. I know they are not to everyone’s liking but I love them. The tomato mash add a sweetness to the dish and it also helped to bring all these tasty flavours together. I loved this dish and I hope you enjoy it as well.
