Rustic Tomato Basil Bruschetta on Pumpernickel

  • 1 large tomato, seeded and finely diced
  • hand full of basil leaves (I took about 20 since basil is in abundance in the garden)
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • pinch sea salt
  • Pumpernickel loaf sliced 1/2" thick
  • olive oil
  1. preheat oven to 450-degrees
  2. combine tomato, basil, garlic, 1 tsp olive oil, vinegar and salt in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  3. brush one side of each slice of bread and toast in oven, oil-side down, for five minutes.
  4. Remove bread from oven, turn over and top with tomato-basil mixture.
  5. Return to oven for an additional two minutes.

  6. Hi, Dan. I'm jumping back in to answer your question regarding file powder. It tastes like a mix of thyme and sage. It is used as a thickener at the very end of cooking. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
