Bruschetta

Bruschetta is an Antipasto dish from Italy consisting of grilled bread rubbed with garlic, olive oil and salt. There are a variety of toppings used - tomatoes, vegetables, cured meat, cheese etc. It is served as a snack or appetizer.

Here is my version of Bruschetta.
I tried Bruschetta for the first time, during my trip to Germany in April 2015 & absolutely Loved it !!!
Once back home, I tried this recipe at home & it was a instant hit & everyone at home love it as much as I do!!!
A very quick appetizer recipe. Enjoy !!!!



Ingredients

 1 loaf Baguette (French bread)

For the topping

2 tomatoes (finely chopped)
a handful of olives (sliced)
3-4 cloves of garlic (minced)
2 tsp coriander leaves (finely chopped)
1 tsp Italian seasoning (dried herbs consisting of parsley, rosemary, dill & thyme)
1/2 tsp crushed pepper
1/2 tsp red chilli flakes
salt to taste
2-3 tbsp Olive oil
1/4 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese


Method

Slice the baguette diagonally into 1" thick slices. Arrange the slices on a baking sheet.










Pour Olive oil into a bowl. Add chopped tomatoes, olives, garlic, coriander leaves, Italian seasoning, pepper, chilli flakes & salt. Mix together with a spoon.

Scoop a teaspoonful of this mixture and spread onto the sliced bread slice. Repeat with the rest of the bread & topping.
Sprinkle 1/2 tsp shredded cheese on each slice.
