With a craving for something light and savory, I gathered some fresh tomatoes from the garden and whipped this Bruschetta up in just a few minutes.
Brushchetta is super simple, and it’s super easy to make it your own! The most important part is the freshness of the tomatoes. Go to your nearby farmers market and pick some up!
Traditionally, Bruschetta is made with garlic, balsamic vinegar, and basil. However, since I tend not to follow tradition, I mixed mine up today with tomatoes, pepper, lemon juice, olive oil, and parmesan cheese. I encourage you to play around with flavors and make it your own!
I used some leftover bread from dinner the night before to make some super crunchy, tasty Crostinis. The Crostini serves a very important role as being the vehicle holding your precious tomato creation. I topped the bread with a spread of of crushed garlic, melted butter, and dried basil, popped them in the toaster oven for about 4 minutes on “medium toast”, and waited as the sweet aroma filled the kitchen.
I dined in complete satisfaction; my afternoon snack was delicious.
