This is the Easiest Bruschetta Ever.
Let me start by saying that these 5 different bruschetta recipes might look complicated to you. It was easier than even I thought it was going to be. It ended up being cheap for me while helping me use up some stuff in my fridge.
My Five Bruschetta Flavors:
Classic Hummus with Garlic and Almond Cheese
Using my classic hummus recipe I had leftovers of from last week’s post, I added some roasted garlic. Sprinkled over the hummus was a little bit of garlic salt seasoning.
Crumbled over the top was some almond cheese that I made wrong but it still turned out pretty good.
Note: I re-made this particular cheese. It was addicting and heavenly. Check out my post on it here.
Artichoke Heart and White Beans
This particular Bruschetta is packed full with toppings. I brushed the bread with the juice from the jar of artichoke hearts I bought. Then added on the artichokes and beans. Simple as that. The beans were good because it adds more substance than the flavors with a simple spread.
This one was the one I was looking forward to the most. You always know exactly what you are getting with the tomato and balsamic glaze. It was delicious as I expected it to be. I also brushed the bread with olive oil before adding the toppings to keep it from being too dry.
Arugula Topped Spinach Hummus
Despite my spinach hummus being my fiancé’s favorite of last weeks three flavors I also had some of it left. This one was really simple and very green. Lots of hummus topped with chopped up arugula. Simple but flavorful.
Cashew Cheese and Family Jam
Treeline makes dairy-free cheese from cashews and it is a little pricey. My local grocery store had a ton on sale for very cheap because the one flavor was coming close to their sell-by date. The chipotle Serrano pepper flavor is the only one I have tried and I love it. It is good on quesadillas, on top of dinners, and especially on bruschetta!
On top of the delicious cashew cheese I added some blueberry jam that my mom and aunt made. She was worried it was not going to be very good but I really like it. It might have to be one of my future posts.
How to do this?
In order to make this easy, I set everything up on one pan and baked it together. Starting with putting the bread slices out, then adding the toppings one flavor at a time while the oven preheated. Then I tossed it in for about 15 minutes.
Mix and Match Your Bruschetta Flavors
I happened to have all of the ingredients except the sourdough bread. Making one or two of these recipes might be more feasible for you than making all five. I would love to see which ones you try (Send me the pictures!).
- Sourdough bread (sliced)
- 2 garlic cloves
- Classic Hummus
- Garlic powder
- White beans of your choice
- Artichoke Hearts
- Diced tomatoes
- Balsamic glaze
- olive oil
- Spinach flavor hummus
- Chopped arugula
- Cashew cheese (flavor of your choice)
- Jam (flavor of your choice)
- Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Layer the ingredients for each flavor on slices of sourdough bread. Line a baking sheet with the slices of bread. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
- Oven temperatures vary, check for slight browning of the bread to be sure it is done.
