Pa Amb Tomàquet

>
>
While “Tomato Bread” or “Pan de Tomate” is well know around the world, the similar dish  “pa amb tomàquet” is less known and slightly different in its preparation.
Usually, (but not always),  pan de tomate is done with pureed tomatoes, olive oil and garlic on grilled bread, while the authentic Catalan “pa amb tomàquet” has the tomato cut in half, then rubbed on the bread. Granted, the difference is subtle, but I personally prefer the the Catalan version to the one with the (too much for me) pureed tomatoes.
Either way, thank you Spain for another wonderful, simple dish that makes our life a better one 🙂
