Tomato and Basil Bruschetta

Tomato Bruschetta with Lightly Dried Basil

Serves 20
300 g ciabatta loaf
500 g cherry tomatoes (or other ripe tomatoes)
2 tsp Garlic Stir-In Paste
1 tsp Lightly Dried Basil
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, (plus extra to drizzle, optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Slice the ciabatta loaf into roughly 20 slices, each around 1cm thick. Toast the slices of bread in a toaster or a hot oven until golden and crisp. Allow these to cool completely, they should harden as they cool.


Dice the cherry tomatoes and combine with the Gourmet Garden Lightly Dried Basil, Garlic and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. For best results, leave to stand for 30 minutes to allow the flavours to mingle before assembling the bruschetta.


Spoon the tomato mixture evenly over the toasted ciabatta and serve, drizzled with a little more olive oil if desired. Finish with a garnish of Lightly Dried Basil.
