2. Ingredients for Pan con Tomate
- extra-virgin olive oil
- garlic cloves
- heirloom tomatoes
- flaky sea salt
- Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Brush cut side of bread with olive oil. Grill cut-side down until golden brown and grill marks have formed, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately rub cut side of baguette with the cut side of a piece of garlic.
- Slice tomato in half across the middle (not through the stem) and smash the insides of one half all over a slice of bread by rubbing the cut side of the tomato vigorously on the toast. Repeat with remaining tomato halves and bread. (Note: If the tomato isn’t squishy enough to smash on the bread, grate it, discard the skin, and spread the pulp onto the bread instead.)
- To finish, drizzle the toasts with olive oil and top with a sprinkle of sea salt.
