This easy Vegan Bruschetta-Inspired Recipe is the perfect appetizer or side to your summer recipes! I always have an abundance of tomatoes and basil from my garden in the summer, and this recipe combines perfectly for a savory, salty, umami-packed snack or meal.
Combine tomatoes, olives, basil, two cloves of minced garlic, olive oil, balsamic and salt in a bowl and stir to combine. Let sit for five minutes.
Set oven broiler to high (or 550 degrees F). Rub sliced baguette with halved raw garlic. Broil baguette for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
Spoon tomato mixture onto sliced baguette. Broil for another 2-3 minutes, until tomatoes have slightly deepened in colour. Serve and enjoy!
