Italian Tomato Bruschetta Recipe Recipe

During our trip to Florence, we were able to cook a few meals at home, sampling local ingredients. We lived right in the heart of Firenze and while preparing dinner, I sent my husband Lulu out to find a rustic bread. He ended up in a "panificio" (bread bakery) and asked the baker for his most popular bread. Lulu came home with a giant loaf of Tuscan-style bread, which I sliced into thick, crusty pieces and prepared bruschetta.

Bruschetta basically consists of grilled bread rubbed with fresh garlic and topped with tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper. I upped the flavors with roasted garlic and loads of fresh basil.

Tomato Bruschetta Recipe

Though my intention in making these mini bruschetta was to provide a healthy and appealing snack for kids, they aren't the only ones who'll enjoy these tasty treats! My husband Lulu, who at times acts like a kid himself, greatly appreciated them too. But really, who could resist garlic-rubbed toasted bread topped with a mixture of chopped ripe tomatoes, fresh garlic, fresh basil, black pepper and extra-virgin olive oil? All you really need are fresh, quality ingredients and little helpers to assemble them!

This is another recipe that I prepared with Lilea from California Lavash a while back. If you'd like to try some delicious bread from California Lavash, Pham Fatale will be hosting a giveaway soon. Stay tuned!
