Tomato bruschetta

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan.
  • Cut the bread into 6-8 slices and brush them with 50 g olive oil. 
  • Arrange the slices into a baking pan, one next to the other, and bake them in the oven for 5 minutes. 
  • Remove from the oven, flip the slices over, and bake them for another 5 minutes.
  • Remove the baking pan from the oven. 
  • Cut one clove of garlic in half, pierce the one half with a fork, and brush the bread slices with it -with its cut side- so that the slices get the aromas of the garlic. Follow the same process for the other half of the garlic clove.
  • Cut the tomato into small cubes, finely chop the second clove of garlic and the basil leaves, and add them into a bowl.
  • Add the balsamic vinegar into the bowl along with salt and pepper, and mix with a spoon. 
  • Divide the tomato mixture among the bread slices. 
  • Serve with basil leaves.
