Core Bruschetta aka Tomato and Basil on Toast (V)

Suitable for Vegan Vegetarians
Serves: 1 for meal, 2 for entree

Difficulty: Very Easy

  • 2 slices of grainy bread (I used Cape Seed)
  • 2 - 3 ripe but firm tomatoes (I use Romas or cherry), diced
  • 2-4 fresh basil leaves, finely cut (try scissors)
  • 1 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, unpeeled and cut in half
  • pepper and salt

Optional extras: finely chopped olives, capsicum, spring onions, garlic. Canned/frozen corn.


In a non-metallic dowl, mix together all except bread and garlic.
Rub the cut garlic over one side of the bread.
Grill or bake until lightly brown.
Pile the tomato mix on the bread at least 1 cm thick and serve immediately.

Not on Core? 2 points per slice - bread 1.5pts, oil 0.5pts
