Sometimes when I run out of time or when I feel lazy I make bruschetta with whatever it is left in the fridge then off you go.. lunch is sorted!

I love using wholemeal bread but rustic white bread is very good too. All you need is good bread, good olive oil and a clove of garlic to rub on then it is up to you what you want to put on top.

This is a very "spring-like" fresh bruschetta with asparagus, fava beans and mozzarella, very simple but delicious.

  • Prep Time : 25 minutes
  • Yield : 6



Steam the fava beans and the asparagus for 5-8 minutes over a steamer or over a pot of boiling water. Then remove the outer shell of the beans.

Slice the bread into thick slices. Heat a griddle pan up brushing the rack lightly with olive oil. When it is very hot cut the bread into 6 thick slices and toast it on both sides until golden.

Rub the clove of garlic vigorously on both sides.
