Sweet Tomato Relish

If there was a reason to go out for Sunday breakfast it was for the taste of the Sweet Tomato Relish at our local bakery.  So I decided it was high time I made a homemade equivalent! After a couple of attempts my family have declared this the best!

I serve this alongside toast, plant-powered bacon and some sliced shiitake mushrooms (stir-fried in olive oil, salt, pepper finished off with a dash of lemon juice) It’s just as delicious pilled onto a vegan burger!
