Pan con Tomate for New Year’s

Need a really simple, really quick appetizer to make for a New Year’s Eve party? Look no further! I ate this dish in Spain all the time and love it because it’s extremely rich and flavorful and requires very few ingredients. My host parents used to eat these for snack and it was a regular fixture at our dinner table as well. Now that I’m home, I make it whenever I have the time to make a homemade bread which fortunately was this week!

Enjoy–and happy new year!!!

Pan Con Tomate

By Emily of (Mainly) Gluten Free in NYC


Gluten Free Baguette or French Bread (I use Gluten Free Pantry mix)
Ripe tomatoes, pureed with skin
Fresh garlic cloves, peeled
Olive Oil

Begin by slicing the bread into small rectangles or ovals, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch think. Toast on both sides until light brown. Be careful not to burn the bread!

Spread about 1/8 teaspoon of olive oil on each piece of bread and sprinkle lightly with salt. Rub some fresh garlic on the olive oil side of the bread–not too much, but enough for the toast to pick up some light garlic flavor. Place a dollop of the tomato puree on each piece of bread and serve warm. Buen provecho!
