Enjoy the Mediterranean flavor of this easy tomato baguette recipe! Crispy toasted baguette, lightly brushed with garlic and olive oil, serves as the perfect base for the juicy tomatoes. A touch of coarse sea salt and a leaf of basil round off this treat - ideal for a moment of indulgence, especially in combination with a glass of white wine.


  • Duration: 20 minutes
  • Quantity: 6 pieces
  • Difficulty: easy


  • 6 slices of baguette
  • 1 small spring onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 3 large tomatoes (or about 10 cocktail tomatoes)
  • a handful of fresh basil
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar (reduction)
  • Salt pepper


    First cut the tomatoes into small pieces. Cut the spring onion into very fine rings and place in a bowl with the tomato pieces. Spread about a tablespoon of virgin olive oil over it, season with salt and pepper and finally add the chopped basil leaves. Mix everything well, but carefully. Half a teaspoon of dark balsamic reduction supports the sweetness of the tomatoes.

    Brown the sliced ​​baguette on both sides either simply in the toaster or traditionally in a grill pan. (A touch of olive oil spread on the bread supports the browning process.)
    Do not leave the bread slices unattended and turn them after a few minutes. Once they have turned a lovely brown color, they can be removed from the pan. Now peel the garlic clove, cut it and rub it on one side of the bread with a little olive oil. (Not too much, otherwise the garlic flavor will be too intense.)

    Finally, use a fork to top the baguette with the tomatoes so that too much of the juice that has escaped does not get onto the bread. Garnish with a leaf of basil and some coarse sea salt and enjoy fresh, preferably with a glass of white wine.
