Simple Bruschetta

After running around yesterday for a doctor’s appointment across town, driving back to pick up my husband from work, and hitting the gym, I was hungry and had no interest in spending a lot of time cooking dinner.  I had some tomatoes and onions sitting around that had seen better days, so I decided to make a simple bruschetta to eat alongside some prepared soup and frozen veggies.  I didn’t use a fancy baguette or anything, just simple slices of gluten-free bread (Rudi’s whole grain) that I had sitting in the freezer.  The fresh basil made this awesome!

Simple Bruschetta

Ingredients (for 2 servings):
2 pieces gluten-free bread
1 tomato, diced with seeds removed
1/2 onion, diced
4-5 fresh basil leaves
extra virgin olive oil
garlic powder
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese

Directions:
1.  Broil bread until just browned.
2.  Add diced tomatoes and onion, then drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic powder, add mozzarella cheese, and chopped basil leaves (in that order).
3.  Broil on middle rack for about 3-4 minutes until cheese is melted.
4.  Serve immediately.

We had this with some creamy tomato soup and green beans.  The entire meal took less than 15 minutes to prepare and tasted great!

Happy eating!
