Pan Con Tomate

Pan con tomate is just about as humble as a dish can get. It has only five ingredients—bread, tomato, olive oil, garlic, and salt—and requires almost no actual cooking, yet it’s precisely this simplicity that makes it so perfect.



2 large, ripe tomatoes

1 clove of garlic

2 tbsp olive oil

salt and pepper

2 slices of good bread


Toast the bread. Grate the good tomatoes on a large hole grater and add lots of flakey salt and olive oil. Rub the toast with a clove of garlic and then top with the tomatoes. Finish with more salt.
