Tomato and Garlic Toast (Pa amb Tomaquet)

Tomato and Garlic Toast (Pa amb Tomaquet)

Even though the appetizers known as tapas are originally from Andalusia in southern Spain, this simple tapa (pronounced pah ahmb toh-MAH-ket) is popular in Catalonian restaurants and homes. Hearty toasted bread is a great complement to very ripe tomatoes. The crusty toast soaks up the tomato and garlic flavor, and pairs well with Catalonian Salad with Greens and Romesco Vinaigrette or Garlic Soup. If you have the grill fired up, you can grill the bread instead of broiling it.
