This dish is absolutely all about rustic, simple, good quality ingredients. I can guarantee that there are few simple pleasures in life that are as good as this. Try it and you’ll never look back…or serve up a bit of bread any other way.
Spanish Tomato Bread
Preparation Time – 2 minutes
Cooking Time – 5 minutes
2 Ciabattas – Cut in half lengthways and toasted until golden and crisp
1 Large clove of garlic
1 Large very ripe (deep red) tomato – Cut in half, horizontally
Generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
Sprinkle of sea salt
Begin by slicing the ciabatta horizontally and then oven baking (if not already pre-cooked) or grilling until crisp and golden. This should only take 2-3 minutes so be careful not to burn.
Once the ciabatta’s toasted take one half of the garlic and rub over the toasted side of the bread and do the same with the sliced tomato. The soft tomato will take to break down and coat the toast with it’s juices. Finish off with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. Repeat across all your bread and serve immediately.
