Simple Bruschetta

I found a beautiful baguette at the local organic store and was sitting around trying to think of something more creative than just eating it out of the bag, which is what I really wanted to do. Well, creativity aside, I thought a simple bruschetta with fresh roma tomatoes and basil might do the trick.

Simple Brushetta

  • 7 roma tomatoes, chopped in big chunks
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp and 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup and 2 T fresh basil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 French baguette

Preheat the oven on broiler setting.

In a large bowl, combine the roma tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, basil, salt, and pepper. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 minutes.

Cut the baguette in thin slices. On a baking sheet, place them in a single layer and broil until brown, about 1 to 2 minutes.

Top the baguette slices with the tomato mixture, then place back in the broiler for a minute to heat it all up. Enjoy!
