Winter bruschetta

24 Nov

Another recipe so simple as to cause its authors to wonder if publishing it on their blog is not just a little bit patronising to any others who might pass this posts way, but we enjoyed it so wanted to record it for our future reference. Perfect way to use day old bread on a cold day.

(PS. This isn’t winter bruschetta because we did anything worthy like use seasonal ingredients. It’s just warm and cosy)

Winter bruschetta (serves 2 as a snack or starter)

  • 4 very ripe tomatoes
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 TBSP balsamic vinegar
  • Day old bread

Heat oil in pan, adding garlic when hot. Add chopped tomatoes and a dash of balsamic and salt. Cook down until tomatoes soften.

Meanwhile, toast day old bread (we used the end of a baguette).

Scoop hot tomato mix over toasted bread and serve immediately. Can add fresh herbs or cheese at this point if desired.

Estimated cost: 60p

Musical accompaniment: Oh Ruin
