Tasty Bruschetta

As you may have noticed while reading our blog, our group of friends is very big on potlucks. With recipes such as our Light Veggie Dip and our Spinach, Pair and Parmesan salad, our get togethers are always quite tasteful.

But when you need to bring a plate of food to a whole bunch of hungry men for Hockey Night in Canada, you need to make sure that the food you bring is finger licking good. As such, I prepared a nice bowl of bruschetta for the event, served with a toasted baguette. This recipe is sure to please your bunch of hungry men! ;)

Ingredients (yields around 24 portions):
  • 6-7 tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2.5 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tsp dry basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 french baguette
  • margarine/butter
How to:
  1. Boil the tomatoes for 1 minute in boiling water just removed from the burner, then drain the water and remvoe the skins off the tomatoes. (that's probably the most tedious part. Don't worry if you didn't remove ALL the skin. Just remove as much as you can)
  2. Cut your peeled tomatoes in halves then in quarters and remove the seeds and juice from the center. (I won't lie, that's also tedious...)
  3. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F.
  4. Chop your tomatoes finely.
  5. Put the tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, salt and paper, and basil in a bowl and mix well. Adjust your dressing portions depending on your taste.
  6. Cut your baguette into slices and coat one side with margarine/butter. Place on a cookie sheet, margarine/butter side down and toast for 5-6 minutes.

I will admit that the tomato cutting part takes longer than expected. I'd safely put aside around 1 hour to prepare this recipe. Once it's ready though, serve and enjoy your friends' faces while they eat up your cooking skills! :)
