This simple and delicious Pan Con Tomate is a traditional tapas recipe that’s super quick and easy to make. It requires no cooking and can be done with just four basic ingredients in ten minutes tops. Try it with a little prosciutto, wine and cheese. You’ll love, love it!




Loaf of French baguette bread

1 garlic clove

¼ cup olive oil, more or less (I usually don’t measure this, just drizzle as I see fit 😉

3 vine-ripened tomatoes

Salt and pepper


  • Cut the baguette loaf into 3-4 pieces crosswise and then split each piece in half, like you would for a sandwich. Or you can cut it into thin diagonal slices similar to crostini.
  • Brush a little olive oil on the cut sides of the bread and toast it.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half and gently squeeze to remove most of the seeds. Then grate each half into a bowl using a box grater affiliate link. Add a little salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cut the garlic clove in half and rub it on the cut sides of the toasted bread
  • Spread a layer of the grated tomato on top of the garlic-rubbed toast
  • Drizzle with a bit of olive oil
  • Cut into smaller pieces if desired
  • Optional: top with Iberico ham or prosciutto


Serve with cheese and charcuterie board.
