Hello & Happy Wednesday!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While I love intricate recipes with countless ingredients (truth), some of the most simplest of concepts are actually my personal favorites.. 

 

Cue the class vegan Kale Bruschetta with parmesan toast!

 

While I love bruschetta whenever dining out, until 4 years ago when I whipped up this recipe I had never made it. It’s by far on of the easiest recipes to throw together and the most tedious thing is just chopping the tomatoes! I know what you’re thinking, vegan bruschetta? All bruschetta is vegan. That is correct, but sometimes the bread it’s served upon is not and I aim to distinguish all recipes as animal product free!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

What’s wonderful about classic bruschetta is that it’s a definite crowd pleaser whether you’re vegan or not! It also looks gorgeous, involves a handful of ingredients, effortless, more nutrient dense in that it packs kale, his a hint of onion from the shallots which I love, offers a hint of sweetness with a classic balsamic glaze and is served on baked french bread with parmesan cheese!.

Wash and thinly slice basil, mince garlic, dice shallots. Throw it all in a bowl and top with olive oil, salt, pepper, place in fridge to enable the flavors to combine.
  2. Parmesan Bread: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice bread and top each side with olive oil and top one side with vegan parmesan cheese. bake for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown. If you would like more garlic, top with minced garlic as well!
