If you are a fan of bruschettas, this one has to be on top of the list to try now! The roasted garlic really brings a fantastic flavour to this bruschetta.
Oven Roasted Tomato & Garlic Bruschetta
Makes 2 big slices
1 ½ cups/ 250 grams cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 whole garlic bulb, sectioned & peeled
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
Fresh grated Parmesan to top it off
Small bunch of fresh chopped parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
2 slices of Rustic Style Whole wheat Bread (Just a recommendation as any heavy bread can be used)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium sized roasting dish, add tomatoes, garlic, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, salt and pepper. Cook for around 35-45 minutes, or until it is all nice and soft and slightly blackened. It is important to remove from oven about half way through roasting and remove the juice from the pan. There will be a lot of juice as tomatoes contain a lot of water. Then return to oven to complete the roasting.
Meanwhile, drizzle remaining olive oil over the bread and sprinkle with the rosemary. Now you should have taken the tomatoes out of the oven. So, set your oven rack to the highest setting and turn the oven setting to grill. Place the bread straight under the grill (plain bread, not topped yet). We do this to get the bread a little crisp before adding the topping. Grill for around 5 minutes. Remove from oven and top with the tomato and garlic mixture. Top it off with a little fresh chopped parsley and Parmesan. Return to grill for about another 2 minutes. Serve immediately when removing from oven.
