Bruschetta can actually be a really REALLY healthy snack if you stay away from those pre-packaged catastrophes. The other great thing about it is that if you make some extra, it keeps pretty well in the fridge afterwords for you to enjoy it again. Or for somebody else if you’re down for sharing! Cause let’s face it, once somebody gets a taste of this rediculously delicious, refreshing, nutritious snack, they will want to get in on it too.
This one is completely homemade. I whipped it up one day when I was bored and hungry and am extremely pleased with the results. And because god blessed me with my male stature, I also enjoy it because it is very easy and quick to put together. There are several variations for bruschetta, so I’d reccomend testing a few out and maybe experimenting on your own, but here’s my rendition of this healthy classic:
- Tomato (diced)
- Red Onion (diced)
- Garlic (diced)
- Bay Leaves (diced)
- Spinach (diced)
The quantity of everything is to taste, since some people are more of a fan of certain ingredients than others. Just keep in mind, however, that the red onion is extrememly potent and you may need a stick of gum afterwords to banish any unwanted bad breath! The put together is very straight-forward. Dice up all your ingredients and mix it in a bowl with some olive oil. I toasted some rye bread during the process and when both are completele, scoop the bruschetta on the bread and voila! A delicious and healthy snack. Try it, it’s super easy!
