Time: 20 minutes Difficulty: Easy


o 1 small loaf of bread (preferably sourdough) or French baguette
o 4-5 fresh, ripe tomatoes
o 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
o 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
o Pinch of salt
o Chopped basil leaves
o 2 cloves of garlic, minced (optional)
o Black pepper to season (optional)
o 1/4 cup of chopped mozzarella (optional)


Step 1: Slice and Toast the Bread

Preheat the oven to 450° F (230° C) Slice the bread diagonally into slices about half an inch thick. Use a pastry brush to brush one side with olive oil and lay that side down on a baking sheet. When the oven is done preheating, place the baking sheet with the bread onto the top rack to toast it until lightly browned. This should take about 6 minutes.

Step 2: Make the Tomato Mixture

Clean and core the tomatoes. Finely chop them and put them in a medium bowl. Stir in the chopped basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and minced garlic and mozzarella if desired. Season with salt and pepper.  

Pro tip: Removing the seeds from the tomatoes helps prevent runny bruschetta!
