My Cooking Diary : Tomato Bruschetta

This post is slightly different to any of my previous posts and that is because it is a recipe. Lately I have started to delve into the wonderful world of cooking. I am no master chef in fact I am no chef at all but I have a love for food and an interest in bettering my skills in the kitchen. I thought it might be nice to introduce you into this aspect of my life and make a change from the fashion, beauty related posts. Let me know what you guys think about this?

So anyway I was thinking about about what to make for Lunch the other day and I decided to make something really simple, healthy and equally tasty.

Bruschetta Recipe:

Ingredients:

3 table spoons olive oil

1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives

Half a lemon

1 garlic glove minced

1 tablespoon fresh basil

1 pack of seeded cherry tomatoes

1 whole onion

Salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 8 Ounce loaf baguette-style French bread (Waitrose actually sell Bruschetta bread already sliced with  12 in the pack which is perfect)


Steps:

Chop the onions finely

Squeeze the half a lemon into a boll and add the onions, tomatoes, chives, garlic, basil and the 3 table spoons of oil. Toss the mixture together, season to taste with the salt. ( I prefer adding the pepper at the end)

Coat the slices of bread with olive oil ( It is good to use a brush to coat the slices)

Place the bread on the grill and leave them for aroudn 2-3 minutes (You only want the bread to be slightly toasted)

To serve, use a slotted spoon to spoon the tomato mixture onto the oiled side of the toast slide. Add the additional basil and black ground pepper.
