After trying the tomato basil bruschetta from Vidhya’s dinner party a couple of weeks back I decided to try re-making her recipe. It was really easy and tasted just as good as hers. She recommended that it will be better to make the tomato 2-3 hours earlier before the party so that it will be well seasoned and taste even better.
2 packets of Roma mini tomatoes (I used 4 regular ones) cut into small cubes
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tbsp basil olive oil (We are so lucky she bought us a bottle when she was in Spain)
1/2- 1 tsp of salt to taste
2 garlic cloves chopped really fine
A bunch of basil leaves about 7-8 average size chopped fine
Sprinkle of black pepper (optional)
Mix all the ingredients together and let it marinate in the fridge for 2-3 hours before serving!
The next dish I whipped up was inspired by the lovely salad medley from Veggie Cottage.! Using just 5 ingredients the salad was done and was ready to be eaten.
1 Red/Green Apple Chopped
1/2 portion of Lettuce
2 tbsp of soy mayonnaise (bought this at Real Food Cafe $11.50) It taste seriously good and just like any normal cream mayonnaise.
A handful of raisins
A handful of walnuts
Mix them all up and refrigerate before serving!
