Ingredients

  • 6 slices baguette

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 basil leaves
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 mozzarella ball
  • 1 pinch salt

  • Heat up a skillet or frying pan over medium heat, and add the garlic and olive oil. Cook for about a minute while stirring, until the garlic is cooked through. Transfer the garlic and half of the oil to a small bowl, leaving the remaining olive oil in the skillet.
  • Add the sliced baguettes to the frying pan, and toast these for about a minute on both sides, or until golden. Depending on the size of your frying pan, you might be able to toast 2-4 slices at a time.
  • Add the diced tomatoes to the bowl with the garlic. Then, add salt and pepper, and stir to combine.
  • Assemble the bruschettas. Top each slice of toast with the tomato mixture, diced mozzarella cheese, finely sliced fresh basil and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
