Bruschetta

Bruschetta is one of our favorite Italian starters. Whenever we visit Italian restaurants, Bruschetta is our default order. Some dishes are easy to cook and have minimal ingredients – bruschetta is one among them.

Ingredients: 

Garlic Bread – 7 slices

Garlic – 2 pods, Finely Minced

Red Grape Tomatoes- 1 pint, Halved Lengthwise

Dry basil – 1 tsp (Fresh basil is preferred. Since I didn’t  have them, I used dry basil)

Salt – as needed

Italian Seasoning – 1/2 tsp (Optional)

Olive oil – 1/2 tsp

Method:

  • Add olive oil to the skillet, over medium-high heat. Add garlic and stir for about a minute. When garlic becomes golden brown, switch off the stove. Add tomato, salt and basil, give a gentle mix.  Transfer into a mixing bowl and allow to cool. Cover and refrigerate for an hour or two, if possible

  • Before serving, give the tomato mixture a final stir, and spoon generously over the slices of Garlic bread

  • I have used Grape tomatoes. You can also use chopped regular tomatoes/cherry tomatoes
  • I have tossed the tomatoes. Fresh tomatoes can be used as well

I tried this with French bread. It can be made with any other bread.
