DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat grill pan or broiler.
  • In a bowl, gently combine the beans, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, red pepper, basil and garlic.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • It's nice if the mixture can sit for a half an hour or so.
  • For the bread: I usually warm a clove or two of chopped garlic in some olive oil to infuse the flavor.
  • This can be done on the stovetop over VERY low heat, or in the microwave heated for about 30 seconds.
  • Add a couple shakes of salt and pepper, and brush garlic oil evenly over the bread slices.
  • Toast bread under the broiler, or on a grill pan for a few minutes (3-5), until slightly brown and crisp, or until there are grill marks.
  • Top the bread slices with the bean mixture and drizzle any extra balsamic/oil over the top.
  • This bruschetta is nice served with a tossed green salad.
