Earlier in the year I shared my go-to summer breakfast, vegan bircher muesli which is a staple for me in the warmer months (find the recipe here). However now that the leaves have fallen, the days have become incredibly short and I can literally see …
I don’t think I can use words to express how much I LOVE bruschetta. Not only as an entree or side dish, but also as a meal! The flavours of fresh tomato, basil, spanish onion and garlic are delicious and of course fresh bread OMG I love freshly baked bread!
This recipe is super easy to throw together as a side to pasta or soup, or to have on its own for lunch. You can easily adjust the recipe depending on the number of servings you require. The key to good bruschetta is definitely fresh bread, I use fresh Vienna sourdough, and while the slices are slightly smaller than normal bread it provides a better base for the toppings.

This super easy bruschetta is great as an entree or a side dish to a delicious pasta or soup. It’s simple, flavourful, fresh and ready in minutes. I use Vienna sourdough bread so the slices are slightly smaller than standard bread slices. Good quality fresh bread is key to this recipe!
Three large tomatoes, chopped
¼ of a Spanish (red) onion, finely chopped
¼ cup of fresh basil, chopped
3 teaspoons of garlic infused olive oil
Juice of ½ a fresh lime
4 pieces of fresh sourdough bread
Good quality balsamic vinegar
Salt & pepper
In a bowl, combine the chopped tomatoes, spanish onion, fresh basil, lime juice and one teaspoon of the garlic infused olive oil and stir to combine
Place the sourdough in a toaster and toast until lightly golden
Place the toast on two plates and brush each piece with the remainder of the garlic infused oil
Divide the tomato mixture between the four pieces of toast, season with salt and pepper and drizzle balsamic vinegar over each piece
Note: if you don’t have garlic infused olive oil, use a good quality olive oil instead and cut a fresh clove of garlic in half rubbing it on each piece of toast to give that slight garlic flavour
