Bruschetta With Roasted Red Peppers Yummy!

"This is one of the recipes I've adpoted and made, using a tomato garlic mixture. We loved the added flavor of the roasted red peppers. To save time, you might want to use the roasted red peppers that you buy in a jar, which I think would work very well in this recipe. Hope you enjoy. We sure did."

  • Brush red pepper with olive oil.
  • Roast red bell peppers over a medium indirect heat until charred on all sides. (This took about 20 minutes).
  • Place in bowl and cover with plastic wrap to steam.
  • When cool enough to handle, peel and remove seeds, cut into strips and reserve.
  • Mix the tomatoes, basil, parsley, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper together and set aside to allow the flavors to blend.
  • Brush each side of french bread with olive oil.
  • Grill the bread over medium heat until golden brown on both sides. (about 4-5 minutes on each side, but watch closely).
  • Cut each piece of french bread into 2 slices (I didn't use the very ends of the french bread).
  • Top with 4-5 slices of roasted pepper and spoon the tomato mixture over the top with some of the juice.
  • Add parmesan cheese and enjoy.

  1. So good! As with other reviewers, I used the jarred peppers, but will most definitely try this with fresh roasted next time. I also used fresh parsley along with fresh basil and I had to reduce the garlic to 1 clove, as my husband was heading off to work the day I made this. Will add the full amount next time nobody is heading out the door. LoL! Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)
  2. made it with jarred marco polo long red peppers. Fantastic! Thanks for a quick and easy and tasty recipe! I put it together in under 5 minutes!!
  3. Wonderful bruschetta recipe Nimz! I did use red peppers from a jar and they worked great. Didnt seed the tomatoes, just chopped very small. Used 1/2 teaspoon of salt for us, the parmesan cheese adds a salty flavor. Wish I could give this more than 5 stars! Thank you hon!
  4. In a bid to be a little harder in my rating system, I STILL had to give this 5 stars! Before she was even finished her first piece, my daughter asked if I'd make it again! I got a bit confused as to how much oil to put into the mixture, but all worked out perfectly. Thanks Nimz!
  5. Absolutely great bruschetta. I took Nimrod Cook's advice and used jarred, roasted peppers (I always have a jar or two somewhere in the pantry). Came together in no time and they were gone in no time, too. One of those win-win recipes - tastes great and is good for you, too. A keeper.


I was one of the original members of Recipezaar that was truly a community of individuals that enjoyed each other in forums and chat rooms. I've been a member of this site since 2003. Made some tremendous friends that I still think of often. I'll continue coming here because my recipes are here and so many more that I tried over the years as a member. It's just a tad boring now and just another recipe site like all the rest. Sad.
