Bruschetta with tomatoes

Recipe from: April 2010
Preparation time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins
 
For something light and tasty and packed with flavour.
 
 
 

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

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
