How To Make Easy Bruschetta!

What you’ll need:

  • 5 ripe tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 8 largish leaves of basil
  • 1 medium shallot
  • 3 tbsp olive oil (more flavourful the better)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 french bread/baguette of some sort

How to make:

  • dice up all of your tomatoes, shallot and mince the garlic. Add all three to a bowl
  • an optional step is to squeeze out some of the insides from the tomatoes to make for less “sauce” at the bottom of the bowl.
  • add olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
  • shred up or rip the basil into small strips and add right before serving.
  • Serve fresh on top of bread or as “serve yourself” style.

For the bread:

  • for the bread, I like to slice it up into 1/2 inch rounds. Pop a tbsp of olive oil into the pan and place the rounds in on medium heat. They cook quickly so keep an eye on them.
