Tomato Bruschetta… it’s delicious, quick to make and won’t have you shopping for a gazillion ingredients. We’ve pimped ours up with Peninsula Larders Balsamic Flavour Pearls and served them in Chinese spoons.
Here’s what you will need
- 1 baguette or loaf of sourdough bread
- 6 tomatoes – pick the ripest ones you can find
- 1/4 of a small Spanish onion
- 1 small clove garlic
- olive oil – extra virgin has the best flavour if you have it
- basil leaves
- sea salt & black pepper
- Balsamic Flavour Pearls
Slice your bread into 5mm thick slices, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt & pepper and bake for around 10 minutes at 180c until golden and crisp. Set aside to cool.
Cut your tomatoes into 1/4’s. Carefully slice the pulp/seeds out of each 1/4. Finely dice the tomato and red onion, crush the garlic and combine in a bowl. Add a little finely sliced basil, a good slug of olive oil and season to taste.
Place a generous spoonful of your tomato mixture into each spoon, add a shard of toasted crouton, sprig of basil and a good half a dozen Balsamic Flavour Pearls and ENJOY!
Until next time…
