Queso con Tomate

If it wasn’t because of a|x i would never have tasted queso, or cheese in this designated way. We were mixing salad one night while i noticed myself stealing chunky cheese cubes from the salad bowl. i wished we were having a cheese salad instead!

Think hard cheese; marinated in a refreshing tomato puree, bathing in EVOO (extra virgin olive oil), infused with herbs… Sounds amazing doesn’t it? That’s why i picked this entrée from Asturias as my very first dish from José Andrés’s Made In Spain cookbook:


The actual dish is named Manchego con tomate. i searched high and low for some queso Manchego, but sadly couldn’t find any so i voluntarily settled with :


😀 A smiley piece of queso! 😀




i love this dish so much i could make it again and again (and again). The crunchy, toasted, slightly salted walnuts definitely add texture to this beautiful dish and also give it a touch of nutty flavor that is just right. My kitchen ran out of toothpicks for the cheese; but hey, can you say you wouldn’t steal one dice using just your fingers?
