Pa Amb Tomaquet (Catalan Tomato Bread)
This is a staple in Catalan restaurants. It is simple to make and can be topped with jamon serrano, manchego cheese or made into a sandwich. Pa amb tomaquet (bread with tomato) "Pahm toh-mah-ket."
1 clove garlic, sliced in half vertically
1 large juice tomato
Manchego or other cheeses
Slice baguette in half lengthwise. Rub bread with garlic and drizzle olive oil over bread. The bread can be toasted or eaten cold. Cut tomato in half and vigorously rub over bread so that a layer of tomato goodness covers bread. Drizzle a little more olive oil on top and salt bread.
This can be served as a simple side or made into a delicious Bocadillo.
