1½ cups (224 g)cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
½ cup (12 g)fresh basil, thinly sliced
¼ cup (38 g)sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained, roughly chopped
1 tsp (5 mL)oil from jar of sun-dried tomatoes
½ Tbsp (4 g)capers, finely chopped
1 tsp (2 g)onion powder
¼ tspground black pepper
½ cup (120 mL)
1large baguette, cut into rounds
1 Tbsp (15 mL)oil from jar of sun-dried tomatoes
- In a bowl, combine the chopped tomatoes, basil, sun-dried tomatoes and oil, capers, garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Set aside to allow the flavours to meld.
- Make the balsamic reduction* by pouring the balsamic vinegar in a saucepan. Cook uncovered at a gentle boil until the volume reduces by about a quarter, which will take about 5 - 8 minutes.
- For the grilled toasts, brush both sides of the bread with the sun-dried tomato oil and toast on a frying pan on high heat, or in the oven on broil, until the edges are golden.
- Serve the bruschetta with the toasted bread, drizzle over a very small amount of the balsamic reduction, and enjoy!
- †1 - 2 Tbsp is also sufficient if you don't want to make a reduction.
- * If short on time, mix 1 - 2 Tbsp (5 - 10 mL) balsamic vinegar in the bruschetta instead of making the reduction.
- The bruschetta will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
- The balsamic reduction can be kept at room temperature for up to a week.
