You Say Tomato...

The first time I decided to make this I was already at the grocery store so I kinda made up what ingredients I thought I'd need. I then looked up a recipe for amounts but instead of basil I had-and-used parsley. While mine is less traditional, it's still delicious so you should give it a try!

Tomato Bruschetta
Printable recipe

Ingredients:
  • 5 vine tomatoes
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley
  • 3 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • French or ciabatta bread, sliced

Optional:
  • Sliced fresh mozzarella




Directions:
1) Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
2) In a small bowl, mix together garlic, parsley, oil and vinegar.

Works best if you pour oil & vinegar over parsley.
3) Dice tomatoes and transfer to small bowl or storage container.
4) Slice bread (if it's not already) and place on a baking sheet. Toast in oven for 5 minutes until lightly browned.
I just used my toaster oven.
6) Mix parsley/garlic mixture into tomatoes.
7) Once bread is toasted, place a slice if mozzarella if desired, then spoon tomatoes on top.

8) Enjoy!

  1. YUM. I love bruschetta! The last time I had it, they sliced the garlic instead of dicing it, so it was basically like chewing on a garlic clove. Ew... I'll have to try it at home instead!

  2. I don't understand the usage of whole and/or sliced garlic in food. No one needs to eat that much of it. It's delicious but should be used in moderation :)

  3. I disagree with Lauren...I enjoy garlic in mass quantities. In lots of dishes. All the time.
