I been introduced Bruschetta while dining at a hotel. Bruschetta is an Italian appetizer that consisted of toasted bread rubbed with garlic and topped with a mixture of diced tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper. Some would add some chopped onions, avocado or basil leaves to enhance its flavour. I like my bruschetta to be more flavourful so I am experimenting with several herbs.
Instead of using toasted or grilled bread, I bought this toasted buckwheat crispibread by Orgran from the organic section in a local supermarket. I tend to stay away from consuming bread these days as they contain gluten. This crispibread, however, doesn’t have a bread-like texture so to speak. It tasted more like a biscuit cracker but I really like the dry aromatic taste of it. It goes well with any topping. Besides, you don’t have to toast it since it’s already crispy. In addition, it’s not only gluten free but also soy free, wheat free, dairy free, yeast free and egg free. That makes it a vegan-friendly option.
