Bruschette Rustiche con Verdure (Rustic Bruschetta with Vegetables)

An easy recipe to tempt your weekend guests or to prepare with your children for family fun.

You will need:

Italian Cuisine - Bruschetta

    • 1kg of (preferably homemade) bread
    • olive oil
  • tomatoes
  • 300gr. mozzarella
  • zucchini
  • garlic
  • parsley
  • salt and pepper

For better results, the bread should be cut in thin slices (no thicker than 1 inch) and left for a couple of days until it becomes stale. Cut some cloves of garlic in half and rub each slice of bread with them, then thinly slice the zucchini and the tomatoes. Cut the mozzarella in slices as well and leave it to drain for 10 minutes.  Lightly toast the bread rubbed with garlic and then cover each of them with mozzarella, tomato and zucchini slices. Be creative and create different designs! Season each slice of bread with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil and then place them on a lightly greased baking tray. Cover them with an aluminium foil to keep the heat and flavors circulating inside and leave them in the preheated oven at 250 degrees for 10 minutes. Garnish with parsley and enjoy with a bottle of Italian white wine from Tuscany or Veneto.
