Bruchetta for a small lunch


Here is a Recipe for a Bruchetta for a small lunch. I made it with medium sized Baugettes. This is very close to the authentic Italian Bruchetta but not the real thing. I have modified it for my taste but I am also going to write the main Bruchetta Recipe too.

Here is what you will need:

- Bread cut into slices/Baugette halved
- 1 fresh tomatoes, diced or 2 tbsp from a Can
- 1/2 red Capsicum, chopped in small cubes
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 clove of Garlic, pressed
- 1 tsp of Italian spice mix or dried Oregano
- 1 tsp of extra Virgin Olive oil
- Salt to taste
- few shakes of black Pepper
- a pinch of red Chili Flakes
- 3-4 leaves of fresh Basil, roughly teared.
- 2 tbsp grated Mozzarella cheese for topping.


1. Preheat the oven at 180°
2. Chop all the vegetables and put them in a bowl. Add all the Spices, Oil and Salt and mix it well.
3. Top the breads with the mix and top it up either with Mozzarella Cheese or any Cheese of your choice.
4. Bake it in the preheated Oven for about 5-7 Minutes.
5. Serve warm either with a warm Soup or a salad for a small lunch.

While topping the bread with the Vegetable mix, don't take the liquid Sauce at the bottom of the bowl, as this will make the bread a bit too soggy. You can save the sauce if you like and add it either to a soup or even a Daal.
