|“Pa amb Tomaca” is a very typical side dish when having tapas.Is really easy to prepare, as basically it consist on rubbing half a tomato with a slice of toasted bread and adding a pinch of salt and some olive oil . Then you just use it as normal bread or put some Serrano Ham, Manchego cheese or any other sliced Iberico charcuterie on top.
Is really healthy, it combines the carbohidrats of the bread with the energy of the olive oil and the freshness and vitamines of the tomato.
Some people like rubbing a peeled garlic clove on the bread before the tomato and in some places they grate the tomatoes to get most out of them and then spoon it over the bread.
