How To Make Roasted Tomato and Onion Bruschetta
Have you fallen in love with this popular antipasto from Italy, like I have? Traditionally, slices of home made bread are toasted, rubbed with garlic and originally served with fresh tomatoes, basil and olive oil…
However, I chose to slow roast my cherry tomatoes and caramelise the onions. First, place the cherry tomatoes in an oven safe dish. Drizzle with olive oil, season and roast until they burst open. Next, caramelise the onion in some butter until golden and sticky.
Next, add the sweet onion and tomato topping on toasted olive ciabatta slices. Lastly, add wisps of fresh Parmesan slithers, basil pesto and fresh basil leaves.
Then, drizzle your toasted bruschetta with a good quality balsamic glaze.
You can try your own version by adding other fresh ingredients. Therefore play around with some salami, parma ham, goats cheese, sweet figs, roasted peppers or mushrooms. Aaanything goes!
