Bruschetta

Bruschetta is an antipasto from Italy and consists of toasted bread rubbed with garlic and topped with extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.

There are many varied options available  including; toppings of roasted vegetables, beans, cured meat, or cheese. …although the most popular version world-wide seems to  involve torn basil leaves, fresh tomato, garlic and olive oil.

Bruschetta is usually served as a snack or appetizer, but I prefer is as an lunch option on the weekend to eat sitting in the sunshine with a tall glass of something refreshing alongside.

Here are a few of my current favourite toppings for toasted sourdough.

My modern take on Bruschetta…

  • Blue Costello cheese, apple slices, roasted walnuts and drizzles of honey and optional rocket leaves
  • Grilled zucchini, feta, fresh mint leaves and a squeeze of lemon [substitute broad beans for zucchini when in season]
  • Goat’s cheese, prosciutto, thyme leaves and fresh figs
  • and last but definitely not least, my favourite brunch option… ricotta, cinnamon and honey

 

…….What are some of your favourite Bruschetta  options?
