Easy Bruschetta Toast
Summertime means there are lots of fresh vegetables and herbs in abundance in gardens and grocery stores all over. I love the availability of produce in the summer months. As a vegetarian, this is definitely my season! 😉
One of my favorite snacks or appetizers is bruschetta. There are so many ways you can make bruschetta. In keeping with our fresh simple recipes theme, our recipe uses easy to source ingredients like tomato and basil and of course some onion!
What is bruschetta?
Bruschetta is a starter dish that originated from Italy. The typical dish is grilled bread (of some sort) that is rubbed with garlic and topped with some olive oil and some salt.
Many bruschetta recipes (especially in the United States) include a variety of toppings such as tomato, vegetables, beans, and cheese. The combination of tomato, basil, and onion has become quite popular!
What bread do you use for bruschetta toast?
My bread of choice for this gluten-free easy bruschetta toast is the White Artisan Bread from Schar. This bread is gluten-free, dairy-free, non-GMO, and preservative-free! This bread is the perfect size to be toasted and then cut into triangles to serve.
You can buy the bread at many big box stores locally, or you can buy online here (affiliate ad link).
How to make bruschetta
Super easy…check this out…
Toast the Bread
Put your bread slices into the toaster.
**Tip: if you use a toaster that others toast gluten-containing bread in, you are cross-contaminating your GF bread! You are risking the chance of getting sick. You need to have a dedicated GF toaster!**
Need a new dedicated gluten-free toaster? You can generally pick up a new one for under $20!
Take that lightly toasted bread and cut into triangles. Place the triangles on a baking sheet. (affiliate ad link)
Make the Tomato Mixture
Next up is the fresh tomato mixture. Dice up the tomatoes. I used some rainbow cherry tomatoes for some extra color, but any type/color of tomato works.
Add in the Fresh Basil
Take your fresh basil, wash it and dice it. Mix your basil with the chopped tomato! Repeat with the red onion. Season with salt and pepper or garlic salt.
Add Chopped Onion and Garlic
We avoided adding in lots of garlic to this recipe. Our family loves the taste of garlic but it does not love us back. If your body loves garlic, feel free to add some more in there!
You can certainly serve this dish at room temperature but we like to warm it up a bit. Gently spoon the tomato mixture onto the toast triangles.
Heat in the Oven
Then pop into the oven for a few minutes to warm. Literally, in less than 15 minutes, you will be enjoying some tasty toast! Serve and enjoy!
