We were staying in this beautiful 350-year-old farmhouse, where lovely hosts Marina and Nacho shared a delicious traditional Andaluz breakfast with us each day. One of our favourite dishes was a very simple tomato bread. Marina explained that it’s a really popular breakfast in much of Spain and some googling has revealed that it’s often called pan con tomate. Just a few good quality ingredients combine to make something very nourishing and tasty. We’ve now dubbed it ‘Breakfast Al Andaluz’ and every time we make it we remember sitting outside, looking out over the Andalusian mountains, eating in the sunshine.
- 2-3 Tomatoes
- Olive oil
- 2-3 cloves of garlic
- Crusty bread (sourdough works really well)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Start off by grating the tomatoes into a bowl, making sure to catch all the mess and juice.
- Carefully grate the garlic cloves into the same bowl and mix all the ingredients together so that the garlic chunks are evenly distributed.
- Add a little salt and pepper to taste.
- Drizzle some olive oil into the bowl, and then spread your garlicky tomato mixture over a few slices of freshly toasted crusty bread.
