Tuscan Bruschetta Dip

"Very simple and quick to whip up. Serve with Multi-grain tortillas, toasted pitas, or baguette slices. If you can't find ripe tomatoes, you're better off with chopped canned tomatoes - or buy them early and leave them on the windowsill in the sun."

    This is so yummy. And now while writting the review, I see that I forgot to add the garlic. But even without it, it's so yummy. I love the fresh taste. I ate it with tostitos. Even my son of 4 years old liked that. :) Thanks Katzen :) Made for I recommend tag game

    This is a wonderful creamy and oh so flavourful dip! It tastes like holidays in Italy. :) The tomatoes and basil go great together and are complemented nicely by the sharp garlic taste. I luved how smooth and silky the combination of cream cheese and sour cream turned out. What a keeper! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this gem with us, Kat! Ill make it again for sure. Made and reviewed for 1-2-3-Hit Wonders May 2010.

    This is simply STUNNING! I have made it today for tomorrow's New Year's Eve buffet meal! And, I have sampled a little bit on a chunk of French Bread! Mmmmmm...........Kat darlink, what a simple and yet GREAT dip/spread recipe! LOVE the ease of prep and the favours are spot on! I used plain cream cheese AND a little Boursin for an extra flavour kick! I also used TWO big cloves of garlic, we are all garlic lovers in this family!! I shall be back tomorrow with photos and more notes on how this was served! Recipenapped for Veg'N'Swap #17 and VERY much enjoyed ALREADY! Shhhh..............don't tell the rest I have sampled this already! FT:-)


I'm a now vegan who used to make one heck of a souvlaki. I love cooking, I was a huge fan of Moosewood and Molly Katzen prior to going vegan (although that has nothing to do with my choosing the name Katzen - that's just what my German Grandma has called me all my life.) Aside from cooking, I also love scuba diving, cycling, politics, and reading.
