Last friday my mum and I followed an evening class Spanish cooking with Maria in Warnsveld (near Zutphen). We had lots of fun, and a lovely dinner. PICTURES. It was just a small group (only 4 people) so we had to work very hard. We smelled lovely afterwards, because the spanish kitchen uses a lot of garlic. We made: fried broccolli/courgette, stuffed tomato, spanish omelet (tortilla with eggs and potatoes) and french toast with tomato-tapenda. For dessert we had baked bananas with sugar, liquor, and ice-cream. I think I need a balanceweek. Next class will be 29 januar.
This is one of my favorite recipes, very easy, very healthy, very tastefull. I tried it yesterday at home. And I'm not great cook, but even I could do it.
FRENCH TOAST WITH TOMATO TAPENDA
- 1 french bread
- 1 big or 2 small tomato
- 100 gram Serrano ham/bacon (Spanish bacon)
- 3 table-spoons of olive oil
- salt and pepper
- 1 piece of garlic
Cut the french bread in slices of 1 inch (2 cm). Cut the tomatoes and garlic in pieces. Put the olive-oil, salt, pepper, tomatoes and garlic in a bowl. Make a sauce with your blender. (Taste it, to know it's oke). Butter the tapenade on the bread, and on a top a little piece of serrano-ham.
If you want you can first toast the bread in the oven.
