Pan con Tomate - Toast with Tomato

Introduction & method

This amazingly simple breakfast - nothing more than toasted bread, olive oil and tomato pulp - is very common in Spain, but originated in Andalucia in the south. It's really quick and easy to make, and tastes delicious. Probably healthy too.

Pan con Tomate - Toast with Tomato Recipe

Make the tomato pulp

Grate one large ripe tomato and discard the skin.

Make the toast

The bread can be anything from a small ciabatta to a crusty breakfast roll to a few slices of baguette. Don't use ordinary sliced bread, it'll be rubbish! If using ciabatta or a roll, split them down the middle. Lightly toast both sides.

To serve pan con tomate

Drizzle extra virgin olive oil on the bread and spread a generous dollop of tomato pulp over it. You may add a sprinkle of salt if you like.
