This is simple… maybe too simple. Jack’s been out of town this week, so not a whole lot of cooking has been happening around here.
I had hopes… I wouldn’t say high hopes, but I had medium hopes of what I would make for just myself. But so far all I’ve made is coffee… trips to food trucks… dinner plans with friends (hey, it’s good to get out of the kitchen sometimes).
But not to worry, I have something really good saved up for tomorrow’s post. So, until then, I’ll leave you with this simple, herby & balsamic tomato bruschetta. You can whip it up in no time… even if it’s just for you.
whole grain mini baguette, sliced
1 garlic clove, sliced in half
cherry tomatoes, sliced
drizzle of balsamic
chopped fresh herbs – I used chives & basil
salt and pepper
optional additions: shaved pecorino or parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes, fresh mozzarella cheese slices.
Drizzle bread slices with olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Broil or grill until edges are golden brown. While the bread is still warm, rub the top of each slice with cut side of the a half-garlic clove.
In a small bowl toss cherry tomatoes, shallots and herbs with a drizzle of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper.
Top bread slices with the tomato-herb mix. Sprinkle any leftover herbs on top.
