Pan Tumaca (Tomato Bread)

Pan Tumaca (Tomato Bread)

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • baguette bread
  • 2 tomatoes (depending on the size)
  • salt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • pepper (optional)
  • 1 garlic clove (optional)
1. Grate the tomatoes with a cheese grater into a bowl. You should dispose the peel.

2. Add olive oil, salt and pepper to your taste.

3. Cut the baguette in 4 pieces and cut them again transversely.

4. Toast the bread.

5. Once toasted, you can optionally spread some garlic to make it a little bit spicy.

6. Spread the tomato mix over the toasts and enjoy it.

A very typical Spanish breakfast. Consists on a toast, but instead of butter or jam, we use tomatoes. Try it only with Baguettes, or any bread that comes in the shape of a bar, with the crunchy outside. And by the way, adding a little bit of the mix to any sandwich makes the sandwich incredibly delicious.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank chelopo for this recipe.

I haven't tried this exact recipe but have had something similar in Portugal. In Crete they also do something as an apppetizer before dinner but they use a harder bread.
