  • 4 tomatoes, chopped finely
  • 1 onion, chopped finely
  • ¼-½ green chili, de-seeded and sliced finely
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • ½ tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
  • warm bread, such as baguette or focaccia
  • salt


Heat oven to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6.

Simply mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, and then spoon on to the warm bread.

Alternatively, you can spoon the mixture onto the warm bread and then heat them together for 5 minutes or so.


Additional notes

Chile’s feria or outdoor markets display the abundance of fruit and vegetables. Veggies can also head for the little natural food stores, the tostadurías that sell dried fruits and nuts, soy meat, and quinoa – the Andean grain with lots of protein.
