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
