Tomato Toast

Serve 2—4


This simple combination of toasted bread and tomatoes is classic Catalan fare, served in nearly every restaurant in Barcelona and the surrounding region of northeastern Spain.

  • 4 thick slices of sourdough or other country-style bread
  • 2 large cloves garlic, peeled and cut in half
  • 2 small ripe red tomatoes (stupice are perfect), cut in half
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt and black pepper in a mill

Toast or grill the bread until it is golden. Rub each slice of bread with the cut side of a half clove of garlic, using a fresh piece of garlic for each slice. Rub each slice of bread with half of a tomato, pressing firmly to push the pulp into the bread. Discard the skins and remaining pulp. Drizzle olive oil over the bread, add a little salt and pepper to each slice and serve immediately.
