Method :

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C fan.

  2. Place the tomatoes in a mixing bowl with the olive oil, cumin seeds, sugar, garlic, thyme, oregano, lemon strips, salt and pepper. Mix to combine, then transfer to a baking tray.

  3. Roast for 20 minutes, until the tomatoes are beginning to blister and the liquid is bubbling. Turn the oven to the grill setting and grill for 7 minutes, until the tomatoes start to blacken on top.

  4. While the tomatoes are roasting, combine the yoghurt with the grated lemon zest and ¼ teaspoon of flaked salt. Add back to the fridge until ready to serve.

  5. Once the tomatoes are ready, prepare the bread. Slice 6-8 pieces of baguette and grease each of them with 1 teaspoon of the seasoned juice from the tomatoes. Add them in the heated oven for 3 minutes.

  6. Spread the chilled yoghurt on a platter or bowl, creating a dip in it with the back of a spoon.

  7. Spoon over the hot tomatoes, along with their juices, lemon skin, garlic and herbs and finish with the fresh oregano leaves and chilli flakes. Serve at once, with some bread.
