Tomato Bruschetta

Bruschetta is very easy and simple to make and if I have friends over and my meals are kind of Italian I always like to serve these because it's not expensive to make and just delicious. You can have it as a simple starter or as a side dish. Either way, your guest will love them!

The tomato mixture can easily be made earlier that day so you won't have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen when your guests arrive.

Duration: 15 minutes

What you need for 4 to 6 persons:
  • 5 (Roma) tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion
  • Some fresh basil leaves
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 to 2 ts balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Ciabatta bread
  • 3 to 4 tbs olive oil
  • Salt & pepper

What you do: 
  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees of Celsius.
  2. In a small bowl mix the regular olive oil with one crushed garlic and some salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. Remove the seeds/pulp from the tomatoes and peel the red onion. Finely chop the tomatoes and red onion and put in a bowl with 2 garlic cloves, the extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
  4. Slice the ciabatta bread and brush lightly with the olive oil - garlic mixture. Put the on your griddle (covered with grease proof paper) and bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the oven until their golden brown and crunchy. Put them on a large, beautiful plate and put the tomato mixture on top. Finish with some freshly torn basil leaves and serve this colorful dish to your guests.
