Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Cut the baguette in to slices approximately 1cm thick and place on a baking sheet. Put in the oven for approximately 10 minutes, turning half way through. Take out the oven and allow to cool.

Step 2

Meanwhile, cut the tomato in half and discard most of the seeds (it doesn't matter if a few are left). Place into a bowl.

Step 3

Cut the red onion into small pieces and add to the tomato. Add the oil, sugar and a good sprinkling of salt and pepper.

Step 4

Shred the basil leaves and add most of them to the tomato and onion mixture (reserving a few for the end). Stir well and leave to stand for at least 20 minutes.

Step 5

Place a spoonful of the tomato and onion on top of each of the bruschetta slices and garnish with a little of the leftover shredded basil.
