This recipe that is prepared quickly and allows you to put into practice the noble art of preparing sandwiches devoted to clearing these preparations from being second-hand foods, sometimes associated with junk food, are delicious turrets that can transform into a complete dish to take to table without disfiguring and which are perfect for saving energy and avoiding tropical heat bubbles in the house when the outside temperature is incandescent.
With good ingredients like the ones I was lucky enough to use, including a divine buffalo mozzarella, it takes very little to prepare a satisfying meal. And if you are looking for a special touch, I suggest using a hand-pounded smoked pepper like I did.
- A ripe oxheart tomato weighing about 140 grams
- 4 slices of wholemeal sandwich bread enriched with cereals of about 25 grams each
- 120 grams of buffalo mozzarella
- Extra virgin olive oil by Fonte Torre qb
- Salt to taste
- Freshly ground smoked black pepper to taste
- Fresh basil to taste
Preparation Bread tower with tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and smoked pepper
Cut the tomato into slices one centimeter thick, also recovering the caps with the exception of the central part, then cut it into strips. Slightly flatten the bread with a rolling pin and cup it with a 10cm diameter cookie cutter. Assemble the turrets by alternating layers of bread, mozzarella and tomato, seasoning each of them with oil, salt and pepper, flavoring with some basil leaves and finishing with a slice of bread for a total of 4. Leave to rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes so that the humidity of the ingredients permeates and softens the bread. Before serving, leave the turrets at room temperature for a few minutes so that they are not too cold, then drizzle them with a drizzle of oil and decorate them with basil leaves.
While preparing these turrets (or any other dish), try to do one thing: get intimate with the ingredients. Touch its surface, inhale its scent, admire its colors and let these stimuli bind you to your thoughts, memories and desires. It's a wonderful way to truly experience a deep and honest relationship with food, to get to know it, respect it, be grateful to it, on the path to a more sustainable approach.
