Tomato & Bell Pepper Bruschetta

I know, I had been away for way too long, much longer than intended .. And, now that I am back, I hope to be regular ..

Summer is at its peak here & it's getting hotter by the day .. And, its no fun because I HATE Summer ... It also means, that I haven't been spending much time in the kitchen & lunch is usually a light salad or a veggie soup or a quick one pot meal & loads of chilled buttermilk .. I just can't wait for the rains to start, I say ..

Tomato & Bell Pepper Bruschetta

I am so much in love with Bruschetta,  these days .. It is a great appetizer & makes a yummy accompaniment with your summer salads & soups.

You Will Need:
  • 10-12 cherry tomatoes - finely chopped
  • 1 or 2 medium sized bell pepper - finely chopped
  • 5 basil leaves - chopped
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of cracked black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • Grated Parmesan - As needed (optional)
  • A loaf of french bread - cut into diagonal slices

How To:
  • In a bowl, combine all the ingredients except french bread, allow the mixture to sit for about 15-20 mins, for the flavours to blend.
  • Heat a griddle & toast the bread slices for about a minute on either side till they get nice & crisp. You can also toast them using a convectional grill.
  • While the bread is still warm, spread the tomato-bell pepper mixture & top with a tsp of grated parmesan. I didn't use any
Serve Warm & Enjoi !!!

    Love bruschetta! Try rubbing a little garlic when it's warm and then topping it with the tomato mix. Yum! Yours looks so fresh, just the way it should be :)
