bruschetta 1024x1024 Dish of the Day: The Reluctant Vegetarians Sticky & Sweet Bruschetta to ShareThere’s no excuse to not try this one, it’s super simple and really delicious. Perfect for sharing and quick enough to whip up after a busy day if you’re entertaining.

Preparation Time  - 10/15 minutes

Cooking Time – 5 minutes

Feeds – 6-8


1 Loaf of Turkish flatbread – Cut in half lengthways

60/80 ml of Extra virgin olive oil

5 Large cloves of garlic – 3 Crushed and finely sliced for topping, 2 cut in half to rub on the bread

1 x Red onion – Cut in half then finely sliced

350g of Cherry tomatoes – Cut into quarters

Large handful of fresh basil – Roughly torn

100 ml of Red wine vinegar

Generous sprinkle of rock salt

Generous sprinkle of white and black pepper

200g of Physalis


Start by slicing the Turkish flatbread lengthways so you have double bread base. Drizzle with olive oil and place the bread cut side up in the oven for 5/10 minutes until it starts to toast or go golden.

Whilst the bread is toasting prepare the bruschetta by combining the finely sliced garlic, onion, cherry tomatoes, basil, red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil in a medium sized bowl. Season generously with salt and pepper to taste.

Once the bread has toasted and is golden remove from the oven. Next take the halved cloves of garlic and rub over the toasted bread, before topping with the tomato, onion and basil mixture you prepared earlier. Cover all corners so no one gets short changed. You can either slice into portions or serve as one giant bruschetta to be torn and shared. Garnish with physalis, an extra sprinkle freshly torn basil and a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil plus any of the left over tomato juice.

    Why would one be a ” Reluctant ” vegetarian ? Is the condescension intentional ? It must be terrible to have to ” Reluctantly ” forego the pleasure of stuffing bits of dead animal into your mouth and eulogising endlessly about how exquisite the preparation is .

    And where the **** in rural Somerset do we get our Turkish flatbread eh? There is a world outside Hampstead you know.

    I love dead animals. Rare rare beef gives me a big buzz.

  • Heathbar

    Then you should just buzz off, far away from this vegetarian recipe.

  • jp99

    Really? I cook veggie as well. Do you always tell other people how to behave? Thank God I don’t know you, then. Another ****ing fundamentalist.

  • Heathbar

    Yes, really, a stupid comment like yours deserves such an answer.
