Bruschetta in a hurry!

Yeah yeah, funny title...but the recipe is one you whip up in a hurry! I actually don't post these "spur of the moment" recipes in my blog- but then it was yum and I thought why not? It is so easy and you need not go shopping to make this recipe. The ingredients just come out of your pantry. That easy, yay!
The best part is you could come up with this on a lazy saturday evening and just plop yourself on your couch and watch the world pass by.

What do i need?

  • Bread slices- any thing will do (I used the normal bread slices- if you got anything fancy then use it)
  • Tomatoes- i used 4, depends on how much topping you like on your bread
  • Garlic- i used a handful of cloves. (use as per your liking/tolerance)
  • dash of salt
  • crushed pepper- according to taste
  • olive oil- about a tablespoon
  • Basil leaves (i used dried)/ you can skip if you don't have
  • Mozzarella cheese (any cheese will do)
  • Chili flakes (dash of it, to get that oomph!)


  • Cut the bread in two halves- I used about 6 bread (12 pieces)
  • Crush one glove of garlic and gently rub it on the bread- this will give a very garlicky feel to the bread. You can even spread garlic butter on the bread.
  • Chop tomatoes and place them in a bowl. (Ideally you should blanch the tomatoes, remove the skin and seeds and then chop them- but remember this is a recipe in a hurry, so why bother?)
  • Add salt, basil leaves, crushed pepper, chili flakes and olive oil to the tomatoes and mix them thoroughly.
  • Crush and chop the rest of the garlic cloves and add it to the tomatoes.
  • Lay the bread on a baking tray and top each slice with the tomato mixture.
  • Top it with grated Mozzarella-
  • Pop them in oven and  bake it for 10 to 15 minutes till the cheese melts.
  • Once out of oven, drizzle the bruschetta with olive oil and enjoy!

Yummm! and how easy is that :)- you can be fancy based on ingredients available in your pantry. If you have black olives, add them to your tomato mixture and give it a new twist-
