Healthy, because

Tomatoes contain the carotenoid lycopene, which has an antioxidant effect and can regulate blood pressure. It also has a general positive effect on the cardiovascular system. The essential oil allicin from garlic is also beneficial for the cardiovascular system. Allicin also has positive effects on the intestinal flora and digestion.

To change the colour of the relish slightly, a green chilli pepper can be used instead of the red chilli pepper. This tasty baguette bread with wholemeal portion fits to the relish.
