If you have ever been to a Tapas bar in Spain you will have seen rows of montaditos on the counter – pieces of bread topped with a myriad of interesting and colourful toppings. The term montadito comes from the word montar, meaning to mount, as a reference to the toppings mounted on top of the bread. One of our favourite combinations is tuna loin, piquillo peppers (roasted red peppers) and guindilla.
A quick and easy dip you can whip up in under 10 minutes. Think of it as something you might use instead of hummus. This dip is great to make ahead, keeps well in the fridge and is perfect for lunches or entertaining. Plus it’s vegan!
Serve with raw veggies, crackers or crusty baguette – it’s always a hit and kids like it too.
Christmas in Spain is all about the amazing food, with every region having their own gourmet traditions. These three, however, are sure to make an appearance on most Spanish Christmas Eve dinners.
