Ingredients

  • 3 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, minced
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Oregano fresh (optional)
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1 baguette or loaf French bread, sliced

Steps

  • 1
    Stir together tomatoes, basil, parsley, oregano, garlic and olive oil in a glass bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add salt at the end, as it tends to break the tomatoes up.
  • 2
    Preheat the oven to 300° F. Brush baguette slices with olive oil, salt and Italian seasoning and place in the oven. Remove when slices begin to brown.
  • 3
    Spoon the tomato mixture onto the toasted baguette slices and you’re ready to eat. To bring out the beautiful colors of bruschetta, serve on white plates and enjoy!

Expert Tips

  • Roasted garlic, tomato pesto and pine nuts, Parmesan cheese and a thin slice of salmon, red peppers, sautéed mushrooms, mozzarella, finely chopped olives and sweet onions. Experiment and make your bruschetta your way!
  • Bruschetta is best consumed fresh and warm. Discard any that has been at room temperature for more than two hours.
