A Typical Andalusian Breakfast

Tostada Con Tomate Y Aceite is a typical Andalusian Breakfast found here in Nerja. Have you given it a try?

Andalusians typically begin their day with a delicious and wholesome breakfast (el desayuno.) A traditional breakfast found here in Nerja is ‘Tostada Con Tomate Y Aceite’ – toast with tomato and olive oil.

When ordering this in a bar or cafe, you will receive a tostada (a sliced toasted baguette), a small bowl of freshly pulped tomatoes, a bottle of olive oil and some salt.

Generously drizzle the olive oil on the toasted baguette, top with the freshly pulped tomato and a pinch of salt to season.(Helpful hint – Prick the baguette with a fork a few times before your pour the olive oil on, as this helps the olive oil to soak in to the bread.)

This yummy breakfast makes a welcome change to the usual English marmalade or jam on toast.

Tostada Con Tomate Y Aceite is usually served with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and/or a coffee. The cost is normally a couple of euros which is good value as it satisfies those hunger pangs.

Of course, Tostada Con Tomate Y Aceite is not just reserved for mornings as most Spanish cafes serve this tasty snack throughout the day too.
