Tasty Tuesday: Garden Fresh Bruschetta

Not going to lie, I've been in a recipe slump lately. Since Cameron and I haven't been eating carbs for dinner during the week, the recipes have been somewhat simple and repetitive.
I came across this recipe and could probably just eat this with a loaf of French bread for dinner.....if I ate carbs for dinner. Guess I'll have to wait until the weekend to make it. :)
Garden Fresh Bruschetta
Recipe and photo found here.

20-24oz fresh tomatoes (4-5 roma tomatoes or 3-4 regular tomatoes) diced small
1 clove garlic minced
1/4 cup fresh basil chopped fine
2 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp each salt & pepper (or to taste)
1 baguette
Olive oil & fresh garlic for toasting

Mix all ingredients and let stand at room temperature for 2 hours.
Slice the baguette, brush with olive oil and lightly toast. Rub each toasted slice baguette with a clove of garlic.
Top with bruschetta.

  1. That looks good! If only we had some good tomatoes this year. I miss the garden.

  2. I have several ripe tomatoes from our garden and I am definitely making this tonight!

  3. Good for yall eliminating carbs during the week. I would love to do this too but Kevin would die. The boy does not know how to eat a piece of broccoli.

  4. This is the first year I've grown tomatoes, and I am in awe that they are actually PRODUCING real, live, ripe red tomatoes! I'm defintely going to have to give this recipe a try.

  5. I have tons of tomatoes, this is perfect. Oh, the protein bars & recipe are on my page today.

  6. The simplest things are always the most delicious. Bruschetta is REALLY good on fish - try tilapia or salmon for a vehicle for your bruschetta instead of bread. All the flavor and none of the wheat!

  7. Ohh I am so happy you posted this! We have an overflow of fresh tomatoes in the garden and I am running out of ideas of what to do with them! Pinning this to make this weekend!

  8. That looks so yummy! We try to cut out carbs at dinner, too. Its always a challenge because this girl loves her potatoes and pasta.

  9. I don't know how you survive without carbs for dinner. This recipe looks so fresh perfect for all the farmers market tomatoes!

  10. This looks delish! You could try this on top of chicken instead of bread for dinner. : ) You're much stronger than I am, I could never give up carbs.

  11. yummy! this looks perfect to make as an appetizer for entertaining! and no carbs for dinner?! is that even possible?? more power to ya!

  12. this looks amazing! i don't eat carbs at dinner usually either but it will be perfect for a cheat day! thanks for sharing!

  13. That looks really yummy! I'm definitely going to have to use my extra tomatoes for this one.


  14. Oooh, I'll have to make this with tomatoes and basil from our garden!

  15. I am so going to pin this and make it! I heart some bruschetta. Have you tried it yet?
