Last minute appetizer
Fresh fragrant sweet tomatoes and juicy sundried tomatoes in a great mixture together with garlic and onions and as a final perfect touch, basil leaves, salt and pepper! Oh my Bruschetta!
OMG! This is my favorite appetizer. I can eat it any day of the week, but when the sun is out and on my terrace with a nice chilled glass of chardonnay, it is simply heaven! Now I know it’s not lowcarb… (unfortunatly!), but it’s not unhealthy either!
This was actually made spur of the moment, when my hubby told me we had company coming over in 15 min.!!!! (start panic!)
I don’t really do well with suprises like these, as I like to be well prepared with meals and snacks, so after spending 2 min. in panic, I finally opened the fridge and cupboards and found I had leftover pesto, tomatoes and onions and some baguettes and presto…. BRUSCHETTA!
Your imagination is your limit!
Bruchetta can be made a million different ways. Some variations could be;
- beans/beef and chili
Mmmm I am getting hungry just thinking of all the variations.
- Your favorite Pesto (I used an organic sundried tomato pesto)
- 1 baguette, lightly toasted
- 500 g tomatoes
- 1 onion
- 2 big pieces of garlic
- 1 handful of basil
- Slice the baguette, and toast it lightly in the oven.
- Dice the tomatoes, onions and garlic and chop a handful of basil and add to the mix.
- Take the baguette out and spread the pesto on top.
- Add the tomato-mix on top.
- Season with salt and pepper
- (Can add cheese if you want)
- Pop them in the oven for 10-12 min at 200 degrees
The guests loved them just as much as me! So no need for the panic really… but I never learn. Do you know what I mean? I am such a people-pleaser at heart, that I just want our guests to feel special when we have them over and I prefer my house to look neat and tidy as well. But who can really be perfect all the time, right?
This was a lesson for me to try and be more spontanious! My husband is an expert in this! I guess that’s one of the many things, that make us a perfect match, we compliment and challenge eachother.
