Delicious italian bruschetta

DSC_1056

Wether my ripe and delicious tomatoes from the garden are waiting to be picked and prepared or I walk by those juicy looking tomatoes at the market I mostly think about making bruschetta. For everyone who hasn´t heard about it yet… bruschetta is an italian antipasto served as an appetizer or as a snack. In my opinion it´s also a good dinner or when having a party during summer this is a perfect light snack. Everyone who likes tomatoes will love it!

Ingredients:

  • 6 ripe tomatoes
  • 1 garlic glove
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil for brushing
  • fresh basil leaves, chopped.
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 baguette French bread or similar Italian bread

Prepare the tomatoes first.  Cut tomatoes into halves or quarters and remove and then into small dices.

Turn on the oven to 180°C to preheat.

While the oven is heating, combine chopped tomatoes, 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, the chopped basil in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Slice the baguette on a diagonal into thick slices. Coat one side of each slice with olive oil using a brush and rub bread with the garlic clove. Place on a baking sheet, olive oil side down.  Toast for 5-6 minutes, until golden brown.

Align the bread on a serving platter, olive oil side up. Top with tomatoes on each slice of toasted bread and serve right away.

Buon Appetito!
