Bruschettas are one of Italy’s most famous appetizers (antipasti or, as they say in Italian, antipasti) and are typical of the country’s central region. They are essentially a slice of bread that has been toasted in an oven that has been greased with garlic and is normally watered with oil. In Italy, a special grill, brustolina, is used, but they can be made perfectly in our regular ovens.
From there, the variations and different combinations will give us different versions in which the most classic Italian gastronomic ingredients, such as tomato or cheese, tend to predominate.
This recipe will be made with tomato, feta cheese, and asparagus, and will be accompanied by a good extra virgin olive oil.
- Loaf bread or similar
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 tomato
- 30 g of feta cheese
- 3 fresh green asparagus
- Olive oil
- Cut three slices of good bread, rub them with a clove of garlic to imbue them with flavor, and grill them in the oven until golden brown.
- On the other hand, remove the center of a tomato and cut it into small cubes. Place the toasted bread on top of the tomato cubes. Using your fingers, top with the crumbled feta cheese.
- Arrange the asparagus on the bruschettas in small pieces. Season with salt to taste and serve immediately to prevent the bread from becoming stale.
Add a few basil leaves to make this dish truly Italian.
