Bruschetta with tomato, herb & garlic

There is nothing nicer than just relaxing on the weekend with simple Summer food, outdoors on the patio as the sun dips in the sky & the night cools.

It is perfect bbq weather too. I like to have something to nibble on while waiting for the meat to cook so decided on some simple bruschetta's.

We love our speciality breads & often buy several on the weekend for the house; any that is left is sliced & frozen to enjoy whenever we like.

I found herb & rosemary bread &  date & walnut bread slices so savoury & sweet breads as our base.

This is what I used:

Ripe vine tomatoes

We are all trying to stick to healthy eating so my foodies bought this prepara oil mister
prepara-tabletop-oil-mister & it is absolutely brilliant

Choice of a sweet & a savoury bread (& great grandma's bread knife)

Fresh garlic, crushed

Chillies - we all like it hot & spicy

The fabulous large IKEA lämplig chopping board that is perfect for this

I did not first toast the slices & they were just fine

Misted with organic rapeseed / canola oil (much less calories)

Chillies chopped

tomatoes chopped & drained in a small colander

Fresh herbs from our herb pots

 Herbs sliced with the herb scissors

Garlic, tomato, herbs, chillies & salt & pepper

Ready for the hot oven

Perfect to snack on while we catch up & wait for our bbq burgers

Perfect snack then ... supper time!

Home made pure beef burgers (mine with some Nando's sauce on top), home made sweet potato wedges, fresh coleslaw, beetroot & spinach leaves - absolutely perfect summer food!

..... and yes, that is a glass at the top of the plate - chilled white wine!

What are your favourite summer snacks?

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend
