The Best Tomato Basil Bruschetta Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4 medium slices of bruschetta
  • 1 fresh juicy tomato, chopped
  • 7-10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar or as per taste
  • Thick cut slices of french bread ( I make my homemadeFast No Knead Breadfor this)
  • Oil or butter for cooking
  1. In a skillet, add oil. To it add chopped garlic cloves and saute until golden but not overly brown.
  2. Let it cool. In a bowl, add chopped tomatoes, basil, salt, pepper, cooled down garlic with oil, balsamic vinegar. Mix everything and adjust spices as per taste.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and let it chill minimum for an hour.
  4. You can serve it straightaway but I feel letting them sit makes them taste so much better.
  5. When ready to serve, heat some oil or butter on a skillet. Lay thick slices of french bread and cook until golden on both sides. Immediately top with good amount of mixture and serve straight away!
