Pan con Tomatillo (Spanish Tart )

This Spanish tart is made from Ciabatta Bread. Its a Italian white bread made from wheat flour,water , salt and yeast. Now a days they use all purpose flour also instead of wheat. I bought ciabatta from local store in the bread section. If you don’t find ciabatta, you can also get any French loaf/ Baguette and cut it into 3 cm thickness,  so that it doesn’t get soggy. I came across this recipe when we had been to Spain for our vacation. This is very simple dish with the combination of tomatoes, olive oil & toasted bread. You have to make sure the bread is really crisped though, to get the ultimate taste of it. 🙂

Add Oil, salt and sugar to chopped tomatoes and keep it aside for at least 4 hours. Tossing them occasionally ( You can also make this  ahead and store it in the fridge). When its time to serve, add the herbs and pepper to it and mix well and keep it aside for 30 mins. In the  mean while cut the bread  slices, pour little olive oil on the breads and rub them to each other in the front and back  and place them in the pre-heated oven underlined with the butter paper or baking sheet. When you see the bread is light brown in color take them out.  Take a spoon and add the chopped tomatoes to the bread leaving the water behind from the tomatoes. Repeat the same with the rest of the slices.

In the final step just pour few drops of tomatoes water on the bread and top it with Jalapenos and serve them.

You can also use flavored olive oil and Cheese spread as a base to make it more tastier.
