Bruschetta
  • 4-5 medium sized fresh tomatoes roughly chopped
  • 1 handful fresh basil torn
  • 1 clove garlic crushed and finely diced
  • 1 pinch sea salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 1- 1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 loaf mini artisan bread
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1-2 cloves garlic crushed, finely diced
Instructions
Bruschetta
  1. Place chopped tomatoes into a bowl. Tear a handful of fresh basil into pieces with your hands and place into the bowl. Add crushed garlic and approximately 1 - 1 1/2 tbsps of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss all ingredients together.
Toast
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. In a bowl combine the olive oil, garlic and pinch of salt. Lightly brush the seasoned oil onto one side of the bread. Lay out the bread oil-side down on a large baking sheet. Bake in batches for about 8-10 minutes or until a light golden brown. Turn the bread over about halfway through the baking time. Cool before serving.
