Yep. If you know any Spanish, it’s exactly what you think it is.
Tomato bread. Toast with tomato. Whatever you call it, it’s SERIOUSLY SIMPLE.
But also, SERIOUSLY DELICIOUS OH MY GOSH.
It’s Spanish food week and we started with cod scrambled eggs and then a Salmorejo recipe.Today I am introducing you to probably the MOST FAVORITE thing that we ate while we were in Spain. We still make this almost weekly because we just FELL SO HARD.
Why you will LOVE this recipe
I LOVE incorporating tomatoes into my recipes because they are so healthy and incredibly versatile- they can be enjoyed in SO many different ways. From a creamy keto tomato soup to a batch of delicious gluten free vegan chickpea meatballs with tomato sauce, you can’t go wrong cooking with tomatoes. Today’s pan con tomate has to be the EASIEST tomato recipe around. It uses whole, healthy ingredients and is SO flavorful, comforting and satisfying, that you’ll want to make it over and over again!
When to eat Pan Con Tomate
In Western culture, when you think of tomatoes and meals that incorporate them, you might think of lunch or dinnertime. However, on our trip to Spain, Mr. FFF and I learned that in other cultures, tomatoes are commonly enjoyed for breakfast, too. Recipes like this pan con tomato one are typically eaten for breakfast and dinner in Spain, especially tapas. So feel free to serve yours for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or as a tasty appetizer anytime!
Don’t you just LOVE a recipe that isn’t too complicated? I’m talking about those recipes you find and want to make right away, AND you have all the ingredients in your kitchen already? Talk about a score! Here’s what you will need to make this pan con tomate recipe:
- Roma Tomatoes
- Good Quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Unseasoned Rice Vinegar
- Fresh garlic, minced
- Sea Salt
- Thickly sliced bread (gluten free or paleo if needed)
- Cured Ham or Prosciutto
What Bread To Use
The type of bread you use to make this spanish tomato recipe can make or break your experience. All bread options will taste good, but some will just HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK. You want a good, thick bread. It is SO worth it to go for a thicker, specialty bread for the overall experience of this recipe. You could even bake up a homemade loaf or two! Our top 3 favorite types of bread are:
- Pumpernickel Rye
- A crusty baguette
- Thick-sliced sourdough
I’ve also made this with normal whole-wheat toast. You could also use gluten free, low carb or paleo bread. It’s fine and all. BUT, do yourself a favor and get some GOOD bread.
How to make Pan Con Tomate
Peel the skin off the roma tomatoes. Next, use a box grater to grate the tomatoes into a bowl.
Add all of the remaining ingredients into the bowl and mix until everything is well combined.
Spoon some tomato mixture onto a slice of good, thick bread and VOILA- you are ready to eat! DEVOUR!
What to serve with It
This spanish tomato recipe is SO delicious and satisfying, but it’s more like an appetizer or a side dish. I recommend serving it alongside a cold bowl of Salmorejo Soup or with your favorite pasta dish such as instant pot pasta primavera. No matter HOW you decide to serve this easy and tasty recipe, it will always be a favorite! Easy food NEVER tasted so delicious, am I right?!
