We have just got back from an amazing trip in Arezzo, Tuscany. We spent four days walking around the beautiful medieval streets, enjoying the warm weather and enjoying endless plates of delicious Tuscan food! Unsurprisingly, ever since I got back I have had crazy cravings for Italian food. So this afternoon, I whipped up a plate of bruschetta. The beautiful fresh flavour really took me back to Italy and I’m sure you are going to love it!
Bruschetta is so easy to make. It tastes delicious and can be served as an appetiser, a lunch or light dinner! It is also a great way to use up any stale pieces of bread!
- Two pieces of baguette/sourdough/fresh bread
- Ten plum cherry tomatoes
- Handful of fresh basil
- A generous glug of balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for brushing on the bread
- Half a small red onion
- 1 clove of garlic
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Goats cheese
- Chop the tomatoes, red onions and basil. Add the minced garlic, balsamic vinegar, oil and seasoning. Combine and mash so all the flavours infuse. Set aside.
- Brush the bread with oil and grill until lightly golden on each side.
- Top the bread with goats cheese and the tomato mixture. Consume immediately!
