But if you want it to be a starter to a lunch or dinner, here I show you how I have presented it.

  1. Cut some bread cubes and toast them in the oven with thyme, garlic and a little oil.

I have also bought some tomatoes that surprised me while purchasing the ingredients for this recipe. They are called "groseille tomato", currant tomato, and I have just slowly roasted them, which has been a perfect result. This tomato becomes a lovely contrast for our recipe.

  1. And finally, I have crushed the frozen raspberries and select some baby leaves as the last touch.

You can keep it for four or five days in your fridge, thanks to its high content of natural antioxidants.

Well, I think the combination has been delicious. In addition to being a refreshing vegan tapa dish, it is super nutritious. I encourage you to try it; you will see how easy it is to make.

There is nothing better on a summery day when you go to the fridge and find a bottle ready.

Have a Tasty Day!
