Bruschetta Recipe

Bruschetta Recipe from the Italian Mediterranean

A Great - Healthy - Bruschetta RecipeThe original bruschetta recipe is an appetiser from central Italy. Basically it is just grilled bread, rubbed with garlic and topped with virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. The most popular one outside Italy is a topping of basil, fresh tomato, garlic, and onion or mozzarella.
However there are now many different variations to choose from using spicey red pepper, tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meats and cheese. The great thing is they are all very quick and easy to prepare and make a great starter or snack.
Why not include it in your own Mediterranean diet. It's healthy and full of goodness.
Eat well - feel full and satisfied and lose those excess pounds without undue effort.
