Its harvest time and I made this Bruschetta from the paste tomatoes, garlic and basil from our garden. It was delicious on a piece of olive oil infused toast, what could be tastier!

How to Make Tomato Bruschetta


  1. In a medium bowl mix the tomatoes, garlic, basil leaves, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. Slice your bread into 1 inch slices. If you have a large loaf of bread you might want to slice the pieces in half again.
  3. Brush one side of each slice of bread with extra virgin olive oil. Put the slices oiled side down on a cookie sheet and toast them until golden.
  4. You can make the bread ahead of time and store it in an airtight container. Cool the bread completely before you store it.
  5. You can let everyone top their toast with the tomato mixture. Don't top the toast too soon before eating, it will get soggy.
  6. Enjoy!
