Cecina Toast


  1. In a mixing jar, add the tomatoes, garlic, olive oil and salt. Blend in them until you obtain a puree with pieces, kind of "Salmorejo".
  2. You can pass it through a filter and leave a more refined texture. In this case, I wanted to leave it with small pieces of tomato.
  3. Store it in the fridge for half an hour to give it a tiny body.

Tomato salse

  1. Wash and cut the beans into tiny pieces.

Serving time!

  1. Take the slice of bread and spread it with the "Salmorejo" tomato sauce.
