Tomato toast on garlicky bread is an irresistible end-of-summer treat. All you need is 5 minutes and less than a handful of ingredients.


  • 1 thick slice of the best sourdough bread you can find (preferably whole wheat)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 fat garlic clove
  • 1 magical summer tomato, sliced
  • Coarse sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Brush or drizzle both sides of the bread with oil. Place in a skillet over medium-low heat and toast until golden on both sides.
  2. When the toast is cool enough to handle but still warm, cut the garlic clove in half and rub it all over both sides of the bread – starting by rubbing the hard crust first, so the garlic gets roughed up a bit.
  3. Top the toast with tomato slices, drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
