Pan con tomate


Pan con tomate
"Pan con tomate" (tomato toast) is a staple of Spanish cuisine, where it is often served as an aperitif snack.

It is really simple to make and delicious: the bread is rubbed with half a tomato to soak it with the juice. After that, all it needs is seasoning and a drizzle of olive oil.

This is a slightly more sophisticated version.
