Friends coming over for a visit and you are clueless how to cook up anything to impress them? Now, imagine you are a new mum trying to get the pieces together. Cooking elaborate is just not an option. Here is a fun and easy dish to bowl over those breezy summer parties you plan to host. A fresh crisp Bruschetta along with a mango lime chutney.
Light & Breezy Bruschetta
3-4 fresh ripe (not over ripe) tomatoes
one bunch of cilantro (coriander leaves)
1 garlic clove
1 teeny winy piece ginger
10-20gm feta cheese/ cottage cheese
1/2 tsp vinegar (any of your choice)
1tsp olive oil
salt to taste
Baguette of Garlic bread (If it is any other bread, rub a piece garlic on it after you pan grill the loaves)
The taste of the Bruschetta totally depends on the quality of your tomatoes, so pick the fresh ones. Chop into tiny pieces and put them in a bowl of cold water. Drain and keep ready. Chop up the cilantro, grate the garlic and ginger and break down the cheese to mix into the tomatoes. pour in the oil, vinegar and salt. Slice up your baguette (I got mine pre-sliced from bakery) and pan toast them. Load them with the tomato mixture and serve with mango lime chutney.
Mango Lime Chutney
1 ripe mangoe- sliced
half a bunch cilantro
small piece ginger
1 lemon juice
few lemon zests
1/2 tsp vinegar
Blend all of these in a food processor and serve with your Bruschetta. This is a crowd pleaser for sure.
