Pan con tomate (Spanish-style toast with tomato)

Tired from work and cannot be bothered to eat out or cook a proper meal? I know the perfect no-fuss, fresh and healthy food to make! It is the perfect mid-week quick and light dinner. Ingredients used are very basic so most likely, you already have them in the fridge so no shopping needed. Better yet, if you have a herb garden, freshly plucked basil is always a plus.



  • 5 slices of baguette
  • 1 clove garlic cut in half
  • 2 vine-ripen tomato (grated)
  • 5 basil leaves (sliced)
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • sea salt & ground black pepper
  • salad leaves


  1. Slice the baguette, as many as you please but the ingredients above are for about five slices.
  2. Toast the baguette.
  3. While the baguette slices are being toasted, grate the tomatoes into a bowl.
  4. Mix the grated tomatoes with basil leaves and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, then set aside.
  5. Cut the garlic clove into half and rub on to the toasts.
  6. Spoon the seasoned grated tomato onto the toast and serve with salad leaves on the side.


  • Use good  quality olive oil and tomato.
  • You can always add some ham on the toasts if you cannot live without meat.
