Bruschetta Recipe

imageBruschetta originated in Italy and is eaten as an appetizer/starter dish. Traditional version of Bruschetta consists of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt.

It has been modified to include various toppings like tomato, vegetables, cheese, meat etc. There is a popular dish in the name of Bruschetta Pomodoro which uses ingredients like basil, tomato, garlic, onion and mozzarella.

My version of Bruschetta has been prepared with whole wheat bread, onion, cherry tomatoes, yellow bell pepper, garlic, basil leaves, olive oil, black pepper powder and salt. I just love this simple yet so scrumptious preparation. I bake a small loaf of whole wheat bread at home itself for Bruschetta.

Bruschetta tastes better if you let the mixture of vegetable toppings (mixed with salt and pepper) rest in the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes. It allows vegetable juices to blend well with each other, resulting in delicious taste.
