You Can Never Have Too Much Basil

Tonight, since my dad is still in St. Louis and my sister is sleeping over at a friends house, my mom and I decided to try something new and somewhat more elaborate for dinner. Since we had plenty of tomatoes left over from our trip to Charlottesville, as well as some fresh basil and sourdough bread, we decided to try bruschetta.

If you have yet to try bruschetta, I recommend it highly. If you like carbs and veggies and basil and italian food, this is for you. I've included the recipe as well as some pictures below.


Ingredients: (Just eyeball amounts based on number of bruschetta you plan on making)
-Plum or grape tomatoes
-Red onion
-Italian bread (or any type of sourdough bread)
-Fresh basil, chopped
-Balsamic vinegar
-Olive oil
-Garlic, minced
-Salt and pepper
-Parmesan cheese, shredded

1. Combine the tomatoes, onion, basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and garlic into a bowl and mix well.
2. Slice the italian or sourdough bread toast slightly, around 1-2 minutes.
3. Remove bread from toaster and put tomato, onion, basil, vinegar, oil, and garlic mixture on top.
4. Add shredded parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper for taste.
5. Toast for about 1 more minute until the cheese has melted slightly and the vegetables are warm.
6. Enjoy!

Bon Appetit!
