  • 1 very ripe tomato, grated on a box grater
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Coarse sea salt
  • Parmesan, for topping
  • Olive oil, for drizzling


Serves: 6 snack-size servings


Heat broiler to high then lightly toast bread to brown. Remove the bread from the oven and rub with the garlic clove. Slather the bread with the grated tomato and let the bread soak up the juices.

Cut the each half of bread halves into 6 big chunks and place on a serving platter. Sprinkle with parmesan and drizzle with some olive oil.
