Maria's Bruschetta.

Using canned tomatoes, this recipe is easy and quick to make. Better with fresh tomatoes but more time consuming and possibly not always available. Vegan vegetarian recipe.

Reprinted with permission

1 16 ounce can diced tomatoes, drained. You will need at least 1 cup of tomatoes, so add more if your can was full of liquid, as most are.

1.5 T olive oil

1 clove garlic, pressed

1/2 tsp. salt

Pepper to taste.

6 1/2" slices of french bread

1 tsp fresh, minced basil

Mix all ingredients but bread and let stand for at least one hour, stirring once or twice.  Great refrigerated overnight and keeps for several days in refrigerator.

Toast bread and spread with tomato mixture.

Excellent served with soup or as an afternoon snack.


1. Garnish with chopped olives

2. Use tomatoes with green chiles for part or all of tomatoes and some "bite."
