Grated Natural Tomato on Toast with Olive Oil
This recipe for grated natural tomato to spread on toast or bread is an ideal way to start the morning. Try to choose a tomato with a low water content, otherwise, when grated and spread on bread, it will become mushy.
Raw tomato is a powerful anticarcinogen due to a substance called lycopene (E-160d), which gives it its intense red color. The seeds and skin also have these properties. Consuming it on an empty stomach promotes the absorption of these substances in the stomach. I once heard that eating a raw tomato every day on an empty stomach can prevent cancer. I'm not sure if it's true, but this statement definitely highlights these properties.
In this case, I recommend spreading it on a slice of toasted rye whole wheat bread. Pair it with freshly squeezed orange juice and a good cup of coffee for a complete, healthy breakfast that will provide energy for the whole morning.
You can also make a Crushed Tomato recipe for breakfast. The difference is that it contains a drizzle of oil, and you can also add half a clove of garlic and parsley, all blended with a blender.
Ingredients for Grated Natural Tomato on Toast with Olive Oil for 1 person
- Rye whole wheat toast - 1 piece

- Salt - optional
How to make the recipe Grated Natural Tomato on Toast with Olive Oil
- Clean the tomato with plenty of water and grate it until only the skin remains. You can discard the skin or chop it and add it to the tomato.
- Add a pinch of salt to enhance its flavor, add chopped parsley and a drizzle of oil, stir, and the tomato is ready to spread on our bread.
- If you like garlic, you can chop half a clove into very small pieces and mix it with the grated tomato. This will give our sauce a more intense touch and provide us with the countless properties of this bulb.
- Turn on the toaster and place the slice of bread in it. The aim of toasting it is to make it sufficiently waterproof so that the bread does not get too soaked when the oil is poured on, as the aim is for the bread to remain crispy when bitten.
- Once toasted, spread the grated tomato all over the surface.
Notes and Tips
You can also enjoy it with small whole grain baguette slices, split in half and toasted. The good thing about this bread is that it is not as permeable as slices and therefore better withstands the tomato and oil without soaking the bread.
If this sauce is too acidic for you, you can soften it with a pinch of sugar.
