Instructions
For the topping:
  1. Mix everything except for the cannellini beans and zucchini ribbons together in a mixing bowl. The sweetener is optional - taste your dressing and see if it needs it. My lemons were new season, only just ripe and very tart, so some sweetener was essential to balance out the flavours.
  2. Stir the cannellini beans through the dressing.
  3. Use a vegetable peeler to make ribbons with your zucchini, then add the ribbons to the bowl too. Give everything a good stir, ensuring the ribbons separate from each other and are all coated in dressing. Set aside to soften and soak up the flavours while you make your toast.
For the toast:
  1. Slice your sweet potato lengthways, into pieces about 1cm (just under half an inch) thick. Trim the ends if necessary to allow the slices to fit inside your toaster for cooking.
  2. Put the sweet potato slices in your toaster and let it do its thing, repeating the toasting cycle as many times as needed to reach a level of doneness you're happy with. Mine took four goes.
  3. Once your toast is cooked, serve immediately with a big pile of herby beans and zucchini ribbons on top.

Instructions
  1. Heat the grill on the highest setting. Once hot, place the bread cut-side down on the grates until golden brown and toasty. Remove from the grill and place on a large baking sheet. Drizzle the toast with the roasted garlic oil, about 3 tablespoons for each side. Layer on the sliced tomatoes and avocado. Liberally season the tomatoes and avocado at this point.
  2. Add on the sliced red onion – as much or little as you’d like. Drizzle about half the herb dressing on now, then cover the top with pulled mozzarella. Drizzle the rest of the herb dressing on. Cover with the fresh basil and oregano leaves. A sprinkle more of salt and pepper if you’d like – and serve!
quick herb drizzle
  1. Add the herbs, vinegar, salt and pepper to a food processor or blender. Blend until the herbs are finely chopped. Stream in the olive oil until the mixture comes together.
