Catalan-Style Bruschetta

Serves 8
Time 35 min
This traditional Catalan dish is simple and versatile. In Spain, it would be equally appropriate for a second breakfast (desayuno), evening tapas, or along with other fare as a casual dinner. Supply grated Manchego cheese for topping, extra olive oil for dipping, and Cava (the Spanish equivalent of French champagne) and your backyard fiesta will have acquired a true Catalan flavor.
Ingredients

Method

Quarter tomatoes, remove seeds and juice from half of the quarters, and then sprinkle all over with salt and pepper.

Put in a food processor and pulse several times until you have a coarse purée. Place in a serving bowl.

Prepare a grill for medium-high heat cooking.

Slice bread on a diagonal into 3/4-inch thick pieces.

Brush both sides of bread with oil and place on the grill, leaving for about 2 minutes and then flipping 45 degrees on the same side (to make a nice cross-hatched mark). Turn slices over and repeat on other side.

Once all slices are grilled, take a clove of garlic and rub it lightly over one side of the toast.

Place toast on a serving platter, garlic-rubbed side facing up.

Top with a tablespoon of tomato mixture and a few slices of Serrano ham.
