This Catalan Tomato Bread recipe is easy to make with just 5 ingredients and always tastes so fresh and delicious!


  • thin slices of good bread
  • unpeeled whole garlic cloves, halved
  • ripe fresh tomatoes, halved
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • sea salt (I prefer flaky sea salt)


  1. Toast the bread slices — either in a toaster, or by baking them in the oven at 400°F — until crispy and golden.  (Toasting/baking time will totally depend on the type and thickness of your bread.)
  2. Take a clove of garlic and rub it cut-side-down all over the top of a slice of bread.
  3. Take a tomato half and rub it cut-side-down all over the top of the bread.
  4. Drizzle the bread evenly with a hint of olive oil.  Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
  5. Repeat with the remaining slices of bread.  Then serve immediately while they’re nice and warm!
