Traditional Bruschetta

Bruschetta is one of those foods that you actually don't have to put the word "Vegan" in front of. Originated in Italy it follows a very pure Tuscan mentality about food: the simpler and more fresh the better it will taste. Music to my ears!

This is a great summer snack or appetizer that is sure to wine crowds over and well as not damage your wallet, alarm clock or waistline. It tastes a maximum of 15 minutes to prepare and only a few key ingredients. The traditional bruschetta that I am making here is just that, a Tuscan tomato bruschetta. You can find millions of other kinds of with pesto, artichoke ect.

4 Roma tomatoes (Diced)
3 cloves of garlic (Minced)
8 basil leaves (Torn)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon Balsamic vinegar
Black Pepper to taste
12 slices of bread (Toasted)

Mix all of the ingredients together in large bowl making sure each tomato is coated. Sit aside for an hour. Before serving toast bread at 35 degrees. Spread bruschetta over it and serve.
