The BEST tomato bruschetta- thanks to a secret ingredient! One of the most popular and most-pinned recipes on my blog. You have to make this one!
If you want to know what I’ve been doing for the last week, you’re looking at it.
This week has been particularly busy, as the healthy eating cookbook I am co-writing (I’m responsible for the nutrition text and analyzing the recipes) is due this week and hard deadlines mean quick dinners.
On a side note, get excited for 365 healthy, gluten-free, vegan, 100% whole food recipes. Yes. I just wrote that. I’ll be talking about this amazing book in the next weeks but for now, it’s all about bruschetta.
I tried really, really hard this past summer and spring to restrain myself from grocery store tomatoes in order to heighten the experience of the first summer tomato. While I wasn’t perfect, I did drastically reduce my winter tomato intake and now…. all has broken loose.
I can’t get enough. Sliced and eaten on it’s own, nestled in-between wheat bread & mayo, topped on raw zucchini pasta, the list goes on.
Lately though, inspired by one of our favorite happy hour spots and our recent Florence trip, I decided to recreate bruschetta at home.
If BL didn’t ask me to marry him a few months ago, he definitely would have after eating this. It’s been requested at least 4 times this week and I have to say, I don’t mind. While working much later into the evening than usual, I appreciate a quick dinner that also allows me my fix of summer tomatoes.
The secret is a thin layer of smoked mozzarella that’s broiled with the toasted bread. It’s the perfect complement to the fresh bruschetta and gets rave reviews every time I make it.
I promise you this is hands down the best bruschetta I’ve ever tasted- you’ve gotta make it!

This recipe sounds delicious! My bruschetta is also delicious and I use regular balsamic and put it in with the tomatoes. Also add roasted garlic and lots of basil.
The piece that makes it over the top is White Bean Mash with fresh Rosemary and Lemon. After toasting the bread slather the mash on the bread then add the bruschetta. Divine!
This sounds delicious. Love the addition of melted smoked mozzarella here. YUM! Have a great 4th Alex!
