Pan con Tomate, con Jamon, con Anchoa with Fresh Parsley Oil.jpg

Tomato toast with Fresh Parsley Oil and a variety of things on top

Prep 25 minutesCooking 04 people

Tomato toast or ‘Pan con Tomate’ is a dish that the Catalonians are rightly proud of. Even if it’s not a great version, it still tastes really good. Using Fresh Parsley Oil only enhances the already tried and tested combinations of flavors here, although a Catalan would probably disagree. What can be agreed on though is not to be mean when dousing the toast with the oil. Add jamon or anchovy as you prefer.

1 loaf of fresh white bread, such as a sourdough, cut into 4, 2cm thick slice

1 peeled clove of garlic

250g flavorsome tomatoes (size and shape is less important)

100g jamon – Iberico is best but expensive, Serrano is fine. (Italian prosciutto can also be used) – optional

6 anchovy fillets – optional

Fresh Parsley Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sea Salt


  1. Remove stalks from the tomato and then wash. Cut in half and then put in a food processor. Blitz on a high speed for around 20-30 seconds, until the flesh has been chopped up but there is still some texture. Set aside in a bowl.
  2. Put the bread in a toaster and toast till brown on both sides (if you have a BBQ or similar type of heat available, then use it here).
  3. Lightly rub the warm toast with the garlic all over – less is more here go gently.
  4. Generously drizzle the olive oil all over the toast and then put a couple of spoons of tomato on top, smoothing it all over the surface.
  5. Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on top and then drizzle a little more oil.
  6. Add the jamon or anchovies now, if desired, and then eat. Whilst delicious warm, the toast is actually as delicious once the bread is a little soggy.
