Put some colours in your food!  If there is something I can always have is a bruschetta. You can let your fantasy run wild here and make bruschetta with anything you like.  The basics are some rustic bread and good quality olive oil then whatever you put on top of it it's up to you.

My favourite is the classic with fresh tomatoes and basil; this is an easy way to make a tasty starter without working too hard.

Today I made this peppers and pinenuts bruschetta which we had as a starter in the garden under a large umbrella to protect us from the sun; after 7 years of miserable weather now it is really hot! And we all love it!

  • Prep Time : 35 minutes
  • Cook Time : 10 minutes


Wash the peppers, remove the stems and seeds and cut each of them into 4 halves

removing seeds

Heat a griddle pan until very hot. Place the peppers over it until the skin blisters and the peppers soften. This might take 10 minutes

Season with salt. Turn the peppers and roast them on the other side.
Slice the bread, toast it and rub a garlic clove over it
Cut the peppers into thin strips, toast the pinenuts. Put them in a bowl with 4 tbsp of olive oil, the basil leaves and mix everything well together

    I totally agree, put some color in your food! It just makes it so much more fun to eat 🙂 And usually, colorful foods are very flavorful, too. These bruschettas look absolutely amazing, I’m thinking appetizer for our weekend dinner coming up! 🙂
