Spanish Tomato Toast


4 small ripe tomatoes cut in half
extra-virgin olive oil
sea salt
Freshly ground peppercorns
8 slices country-style bread, cut into 3/4-inch thick slices
4 cloves garlic peeled and cut in half


Toast the bread lightly in the oven, or grill 2-4 minutes on each side. Rub ½ of a clove of garlic on the toasted bread while the bread is still warm. Make sure to use a fresh piece of the garlic clove on each side of the bread.  Rub the tomato over the bread. Press the tomato firmly into the bread to make sure to that the pulp is pushed into the bread. Discard the remains of the tomato.
Drizzle the finished breads with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, and serve immediately.
