You can. Squished tomato-fresh. I prefer without.

I prefer with tomatoe too, but I think there is a confusion, because "salsa romesco" (not romanesco) is a sauce made with tomate, ñora (I don't know this word in English), almonds and other ingredients. It's used, above all, to company (?) shellfish (I mean "marisco", not fish). It's usual, when you ask for a tapa about "shellfish", to be served with "mayonesa" and "romesco" (in some places).

Gracias para la información. Otra cosa de desayuno muy español que me gusta mucho es conserva de membrillo con queso. Aqui tambien se vende pero tiene que buscarlo bien, y frecuentamente viene importado de La Argentina. El sabor es parecido pero el color es marrón.

Thanks.

We were talking about Galicia in another post and I have to say that "queso con membrillo" is a very typical dessert in Galicia. I haven't ever seen it as breakfast, but maybe in other places is taken (eaten?, in Spanish is: "se toma") as breakfast.

Más común aquí es pasta de guayaba. Es muy popular con gente del caribe. Tambien se la toma con queso blanco.

I never knew you use tomar that way. I alway thought that tomar was related to drinks.

I've only seen queso con membrillo for breakfast in hotels. I'm not entirely sure that it's something people generally have for breakfast in Spain. But I may be wrong. It's usually a dessert and it's general to the north not only Galicia: Asturias, Cantabria and País Vasco too.

Tomar can be used for both food and drink.

I planted a quince tree in my garden last year. Hope to get some membrillos from it in a few years and try my hand at making it.

I love a piece of toast with olive oil and ground tomatoes on top. Great breakfast. What is salsa romanesco, Poli?
