Bruschetta with tomatoes

For something light and tasty and packed with flavour.
 
bruschetta

Recipe from: April 2010
Preparation time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins
 
 

Ingredients

 
  • cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ripe salad tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • balsamic vinegar
  • sugar
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • fresh basil, chopped
  • ciabatta/baguette, sliced
  • butter
  • oil
 
 

Method

 
The amounts aren't specific. You need to keep tasting the tomatoes until you have the perfect balance between salty, sweet and a little tart-ness from the vinegar.
I also used 3 different tomatoes for added interest and it worked really well.

In a bowl, combine all the tomatoes, vinegar and spices and make sure that the balance between sweet and salty is good.
In a hot pan, melt the butter and add a dash of oil. Fry the bread until golden and crisp, (about 2 mins per side) and serve warm with the tomatoes piled on top.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
