  1. Combine the chopped tomatoes, basil, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix to combine and set aside to allow the flavours to meld.
  2. Make the balsamic reduction* by pouring the balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, and allow to cook uncovered at a gentle boil until the volume reduces by about a quarter, which will take about 5 - 10 minutes.
  3. For the grilled toasts, brush both sides of the bread rounds 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. Top the tomato mixture on your toasted bread, drizzle over a very small amount of the balsamic reduction, and enjoy!


  • * If short on time, simply mix 1 - 2 Tbsp (5 - 10 mL) balsamic vinegar in the bruschetta instead of making the reduction.
  • Variations: try with roasted garlic.
  • Serve on toasted bread, sturdy crackers, or as a topper to your favourite hummus!


  • 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.

Aw we're so happy to hear, Evelyn! A good number of our serving dishes are from thrift stores - always very unique finds there! Others were purchased from local Dutch shops, such as Dille & Kamille and we've also purchased some rustic ceramics from NomLiving 😊
