I have been sharing so many recipes with you guys lately ..hope you are enjoying all the recipes I’ve been posting..
Today I am going to post one of my favourite Global dish …it’s the Italian Bruscheta …it’s a dish that can be had as a snack ,as an appetizer, could be included even in the main course.. Italian BRUSCHETA is universally loved by all and it has so many variations now but I am posting my version of the Original recipe which I have had in my various Travels across the world… it is actually pronounced as BRUSKETA in Italian..
This is one of the vegetarian recipes widely available almost in all parts of the world…
Made in a simple way with Tomatoes, basil, olive oil… It can be made in countless different ways with a lot of different veggies & herbs..
Let me start with my Recipe which is very basic & as usual QUICK & EASY !!!
1 French Bread/ Garlic bread/ Multigrain loaf cut into slices
4 tomatoes deseeded and chopped finally
8 to 10 basil leaves torn into pieces with your hands ..do not cut with a knife
5 big cloves of garlic chopped finally
4 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil
Half to 1 teaspoon red chili powder or paprika
Kosher salt or course sea salt to taste
One teaspoon mixed Italian herbs
Mix the tomatoes Basil , Garlic, Paprika, salt ,herbs, olive oil and mix it well
Leave this mixture in the fridge for about 3 hours to marinate so that all the flavours of the Garlic, Basil And The Herbs come out well
Heat a grill pan and grill the bread slices with the little butter or olive oil …. Alternatively you can also grill the bread slices in your oven… Just brush them with butter or olive oil on both the sides and bake in the oven on a high temperature for about 5 to 7 minutes, they should be crisp at the bottom & soft at the top..
Now take the bread slices and put a little of the tomato mixture on each slice & serve when the bread slices are warm
If you want you can also put a little Mozzarella cheese on top of the tomato mixture and grill in the oven for about 4 to 5 minutes
But it is equally delicious without the cheese if you like it simple and authentic as I do
Serve these delicious and scrumptious BRUSCHETA hot right out of the oven.. they will simply taste heavenly…
