Tasty Vegan Bruschetta

Bruschetta is an antipasto from Italy consisting of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. There are lots of topping variations that can include cheese, peppers and more. I love topping mine with crumbled vegan mozzarella. What I love about Bruschetta is how fresh it is and how inexpensive it is to prepare. Its great as an appetizer, side item or snack. The best thing is that you probably have most of the ingredients on hand


Essential Steps

  1. Rubbing each slice of bread with a fresh garlic clove is key. You will be amazed at how much flavor it adds to the bread.

  2. Toasting or grilling your bread until it's super toasted and browned. You want to the bread to have a nice firm toasted layer. This will prevent the bread from getting soggy once it's topped with the tomatoes.

  3. Assemble the bruschetta immediately before serving. Assembling ahead of time with make your bread soggy.

About the ingredients

Lucky for me all of the ingredients for bruschetta are staple items in my kitchen. Most of the ingredients I used are from Trader Joe's including the bread. Here are the ingredients:

  • 3 cups of diced ripe cherry tomatoes *you can use any tomato you like

  • 1 handful of fresh basil chopped

  • 1 tbs of extra virgin olive oil plus more for toasting the bread
