Bruschetta on a Grilled Baguette
Yield: 4 servings
1 (15-ounce) can Thrive Market Organic Diced Tomatoes
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons Thrive Market Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
Zest of half a lemon
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon Thrive Market Whole Black Peppercorns, freshly ground’
6 basil leaves, chiffonade
Half of a french baguette, sliced into ½-inch slices
Add the tomatoes, garlic, 1 tablespoon oil, lemon zest, salt, and pepper to a small bowl; stir to combine. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
When ready to serve, slice bread. Drizzle evenly with remaining tablespoon oil on both sides. Heat a grill pan over high heat, then grill each piece of bread for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until lightly toasted. Top each slice with a spoonful of the tomato topping. Sprinkle with basil just before serving.
