Basic Bruschetta Recipe
Back to the basics
I enjoy making simple dishes with the most basic of ingredients. One of my favorite ingredients to use is garlic. That may be because I greatly enjoy Italian food. Well, I love Italy as a whole - the culture, language, architecture, climate, and landscaping. My brother was privileged to have been born in Italy. I am now learning Italian, and dream of one day visiting.
All of that aside, bruschetta is a very basic Italian dish, typically served as a light appetizer to a usually lengthy meal. As with most recipes, this one can be adapted to fit dietary needs, and changed to suit many tastes!
I like that this recipe is quick; usually prepared in five minutes or less, and plentiful; usually yields 14 or so servings.
- About 14 ounces of tomato, diced (I do not recommend canned tomatoes)
- 2 tablespoons chopped, fresh basil leaves
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (add more if needed)
- 1 1/2 clove fresh garlic, chopped
- Sliced baguettes, crackers, or bread of your choosing
As simple as the ingredients, bruschetta is made rather quickly and easily.
- Pour oil into a dish/bowl
- Add tomatoes, basil, and garlic
- Stir until well-mixed
That is all that there is to making bruschetta. Serve in the bowl, or place a spoonful on top of small baguettes (or other bread of your choosing). To add flair and color, garnish each piece with a fresh basil leaf.Semplicemente delizioso! (Simply delicious!)
