Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 1 min.
Bread with Tomato  : Photo of step #1
Cut the tomato in half. I am using cherry tomatoes, which are practical for this recipe, but this is not essential.

Stage 2 - 3 min.
Bread with Tomato  : Photo of step #2
Lightly toast the slices of bread.

Stage 3 - 1 min.
Bread with Tomato  : Photo of step #3
Rub them with the cut tomato so that the pulp soaks into the bread.

Stage 4 - 1 min.
Bread with Tomato  : Photo of step #4
Pour a trickle of olive oil over.

Stage 5

Salt and pepper - that's all there is to it!


Before rubbing the bread with the tomato, you can vary the flavour by rubbing it with onion or garlic.

Use a distinctivly flavoured olive oil with plenty of character, if you can, for this recipe.
