Brushchetta

Bruschetta is very easy to make and the Sisters find that if you go to a cafe there is often too much onion in the mix!

As a rough guide, 2 slices of bread and 1 x medium tomato for each person is a good quantity so you don’t make too much tomato mix. If you do that’s ok – just add another slice of bread…

Rowena: “My preferred cooking method was inspired by the movie ‘Julie & Julia’ – one of my favourite movies! Until I saw this movie I always used to toast the bread under the griller…”

Ingredients

  • 6 slices of good quality bread – I like french stick cut on the diagonal
  • 3 medium tomatoes (I also like to use 1/2 a punnet of mixed small fancy tomatoes)
  • 1/2 a bunch of basil – torn up off the stalks
  • 1/2 a spanish onion – finely diced
  • handful of fetta cheese, crumbled

Method

  • Wash and dry the tomato. Cut them in 1/4 and slice out the seeds (you need to do this so the mix is not too soggy)
  • Dice the tomato and add to a large mixing bowl with the onion
  • Heat a fry pan and add a dash of olive oil then add 2 or 3 slices of bread and turn and repeat on the other side
  • Scoop the tomato mix onto the bread, crumble fetta on top
  • Serve on a plate
  • Top with fresh basil leaves

This is a good entree dish and makes a good savoury afternoon tea.

This is a nice dish in summer when basil and tomatoes are at their best!
