Mozzarella Bruschetta

I was recently sent a cookbook called Organically Raised: Conscious Cooking for Babies and Toddlersby Anni Daulter. I really enjoyed this cookbook and I wish I would have had it when my kids were first born. It’s filled with healthy and delicious recipes that are healthy, flavorful, and delicious for babies, toddlers, and adults. I made this mozzarella bruschetta for dinner and it was a huge hit with all of us. I loved the combination of crunchy bread, tart balsamic vinegar, garlicky tomatoes, and oozing cheese. I will be making this recipe again and again. Thanks for the beautiful cookbook Anni!

Original recipe by Organically Raised Conscious Cooking for Babies and Toddlers
 
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 6 oz grape tomatoes, quartered
  • Handful of basil leaves, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 ball of fresh mozzarella
  • 1 loaf of ciabatta bread
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Slice the ciabatta bread down the center into two halves then slice each half into four pieces. In a bowl mix the oil, tomatoes, basil, garlic, vinegar, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste then toss until evenly coated.

Place the slices of bread onto a baking sheet then spoon the tomato mixture onto each piece evenly. Top with slices of the mozzarella cheese.

Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the bread is crisp. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

    So great with summer tomatoes! I made something similar for lunch yesterday. I'll have to try adding mozza.

    Author Anni was recently at our local, indy bookstore, but I'm sorry I missed her. I'm interested in feeding the grandson nutritious food. Glad that the book also contains recipes that the whole family can enjoy.

    Trader Joe's should start paying us royalties for all their products we use and endorse, don't you think?

    I like that you used Ciabatta bread, my husband would love these! I had just made my first bruschetta last week and I am kind of addicted, thanks for the change up!

    "garlicky tomatoes, and oozing cheese"

    Only a vampire wouldn't like this!
