Pan con Tomate or pa amb tomàquet is a classic Spanish recipe that's as simple as it is delicious. This garlicky tomato bread makes the best appetizer!
Wait. Do you know about tomato bread??
Because, you need to.
Pan con Tomate or Tomato with Bread is a classic dish from Catalonia. It is ridiculously simple to put together, and the outcome relies mainly on the quality of each ingredient. Good bread. Good tomatoes. Good garlic. Good olive oil. Good salt. Maybe some fresh herbs and pepper if you’re feeling sassy. That’s it.
It’s a great way to use up tomatoes that are on their way out- maybe just a little too ripe for a salad, but still a day or so away from being totally gone. Simply toast some bread, rub it with a clove of garlic, then rub it with the cut side of a tomato, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and devour.
This is what I’m eating right now. And if you want to eat something really delicious, you will make it too. It will taste just like summer in Spain.
