I have found this recipe for Bruschetta to be the most original of all. It is absolutely the best and equals if not betters what they serve up in most restaurants!
- 6 slices of panini Italian bread
- 6 roma tomatoes
- 2 -3 garlic cloves
- 1 red onion
- 8 leaves fresh basil
- olive oil
- shaved parmesan cheese
- Blanch the tomatoes in a pan of boiling water just enough so the skin can be easily peeled off.
- Chop up very finely the red onion, and garlic.
- Chop up finely the fresh basil.
- Peel the tomatoes and chop up into chunks.
- In a bowl place a splash of olive oil, the tomatoes, the garlic, onion and basil. Mix through gently.
- Cover with gladwrap and place in the fridge for up to an hour, this allows the flavours to come together.
- Lightly toast the Italian bread.
- Brush the bread with olive oil and place the bruschetta mix on top of each slice.
- Add the shaved parmesan on top.
- Serve immediately.
I love bruschetta, I always order it when we go out to restaurants. I've never ate the same version of a bruschetta as each restaurant serves it in a different way (Looks and Taste). I couldn't find Panini Italian bread, so I used a Pane di Casa Loaf, (which is a extra chewy texture on the inside and crunchy crust on the outside). The only thing I will change with this bruschetta next time is less garlic as it overpowered all the flavours. Otherwise it's as good as the restaurants.
Simple and delicious! I didn't have panini bread, but used regular Italian instead and it worked out just fine. I also threw in some capers! Thanks for posting this.
