There are times when you want to
binge on something healthy yet tasty. That necessarily doesn’t have to be a
pack of potato wafers or fried snack, right? If you like finger foods you will
surely like what I am going to share today.
Pssst… I am sharing a recipe
after a century it seems, but just bear with me. I am such a lazy blogger that I
don’t know what to do with myself. LOL.
We all like bruschettas, right?
And it’s a shame that MS Word is suggesting me to spell check and change the
word to brochettes!!! In case, you want to know more about bruschettas let me
give you a quick brush through.
Bruschetta is an Italian appetizer
- grilled bread with a garlic rub. And according to taste and convenience people
add assorted toppings. Now thank the Italians for all their wonderful recipes.
Most famous form of bruschetta is a tomato & cheese one. In fact, you can
make some in the way you want.
Here I am sharing one with toasted
mushroom & bell papers. It is crunchy, it is healthy and it’s yummy.
- French Loaf – 1
- Garlic butter – 2 teaspoon
- Red Bell Pepper – half, diced
- Yellow Bell Pepper – half, diced
- Green Bell Pepper – half, diced
- Button Mushroom – sliced, ½ cup
- Red Onion – 1, chopped
- Garlic – 4-5 cloves, minced
- Oregano – 1 teaspoon
- Chilli flakes – ½ teaspoon
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil – 1 teaspoon
- Seasoning – to taste
- Parmesan Cheese – grated (optional)
- Pre heat oven at 180° C
- Spread some garlic butter on the French
bread slices and bake them for 5-6 minutes
- In a skillet heat extra virgin
olive oil and add garlic, onion, mushroom, bell peppers.
Sauté for 2-3 minutes or till
onions are translucent.
- Add seasoning, chili flakes and oregano.
Imp: Do not overcook. You don’t want
the bell peppers to get soggy. We need that crunch of the wonderful bell
- With the help of a spoon spread
this veg mix on the French bread slices and serve warm.
If you are adding shredded cheese
then grill the bruschetta for two minutes in the oven.We enjoyed it without the cheese.
You can add a little drizzle of olive oil for that extra shine.
Wasn’t that really easy peasy?
You can enjoy some bruschetta in
your breakfast, or as a snack in your next brunch party.
In case you want this
for the non veg lovers – feel free to add some fired bacons! :)
So until next time (which I’ll
make sure is pretty soon) cheers!
