Spanish tomato bread

Spanish tomato bread

A classic catalan dish that’s very simple and easy to prepare but totally more-ish. Add to a tapas selection.


1 loaf sourdough bread (or any crusty dense white bread), sliced into 6-8 thick slices
3-4 garlic cloves, halved
2–3 tomatoes, preferably organic, halved
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Preparation method

Toast the slices of bread on both sides until pale brown.

Rub one side of each slice of toast with the cut side of a clove of garlic, using a new half garlic every couple of slices.

Rub the garlicky side of each slice with the cut side of a tomato. The aim is to give the bread a red colour and tomato flavour without making it too soggy. Use a new tomato half every two or three slices, as you need to.

Arrange the slices on a serving plate, drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt to serve.
