Bruschetta on Pineapple sauce

Bruchetta

About:

Bruschetta is an Italian appetizer recipe made toasted crusty bread with your favourite toppings. Here I used tomato, bell peppers, onion and sweet ripe pineapple as toppings. Using pineapple juice as a spread makes the bread tangy and sweet with its flavour.

I used homemade sourdough bread (Recipe link), alternatively any bread can be used.

Enjoy this Italian bread

Yields: 8-10 servings
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Bruschetta-10slices (recipe link)
  • Chopped fresh pineapple-1cup (canned pineapple can be used alternatively)
  • Chopped tomatoes-2medium
  • Chopped bell pepper/capsicum-1medium
  • Chopped onions-1medium
  • Salt- to taste
  • Ground black pepper-to taste
  • Balsamic vinegar-2tbsp-3tbsp (or as per taste)
  • Low-fat grated cheese-for topping

I used pineapple juice to spread on the bread (Alternatively any sauce can be used)

Procedure:

  • In a large bowl, mix onion, tomatoes, pine apple, bell peppers/capsicum using a large metal spoon and taking care not the mash any tomatoes/veggies.
  • Add in salt, pepper, balsamic vinegarโ€“ mix well. (better to prepare this ahead and refrigerate 1-2hours before serving- as this allow the flavours to soak and blend together)
  • Slice the baguette loaf diagonally, into thick slices and spread pinapple juice (or any sauce of choice) , top it up with topping mixture, cheese.
  • Pre-heat the oven at 200deg c, line the baking tray.
  • Arrange the topped bruschetta slices and bake for 4-5minutes/until cheese melts.

Note:

  • Make bread at home using brown bread flour and a whole wheat flour (Recipe – Click here)
  • Toppings can be altered as per the taste.
  • This can be relished even without toasting.
