healthy_eatingSome nights when the weather is warm, you don’t feel like cooking in a hot kitchen.
And that’s where bruschetta really comes into its own.
There’s no need for this fresh, colourful, tasty dish to be reserved for a canapé.
You can make it into a healthy meal that’s perfect for a hot evening.
There are so many variations to this dish.
You could try:

  • Adding some freshly carved ham off the bone
  • Spreading some home made pesto onto the bread before adding the topping
  • Replacing the olives with an olive tapenade
  • Switching the feta for ricotta and a squeeze of lemon
  • Using different varieties, sizes and colours of tomatoes
  • Spreading the bread with a home made dip such as our Minty Beetroot Hummus
  • Adding some chopped avocado
  • Throwing a cooked BBQ prawn on top of each one
  • 8 slices of crusty bread (try to find wholemeal if possible)
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped in half
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 large ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped (or use 200g cherry tomatoes, halved)
  • ½ cup crumbled low fat feta cheese
  • ½ cup chopped olives
  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves, torn + extra to serve
  • Salt and pepper
  • In a bowl, combine your tomatoes, olives, basil and olive oil.
  • Have a taste and season as needed.
  • Toast your sliced bread under the grill or in a toaster.
  • When cooked, rub each slice with a half clove of the exposed garlic.
  • Top the bread with the mixture.
  • Finish off with the feta cheese and some extra basil leaves.
