This vegan gluten free Roasted Tomato Bruschetta is a host's best friend. It is not only easy to throw together, but it is elegant and satisfying.
I think simple, easy to make appetizers are a host's best friend when it comes to entertaining. This Roasted Tomato Bruschetta recipe fits the bill. Sometimes the simplest recipes are the most elegant and satisfying.
Roasting vegetables has been a favorite go-to cooking method of mine, especially vegetables like cauliflower. Tomatoes probably come in second, which is apparent when you see how many recipes I have with them, like Roasted Tomato Basil Dip.
Roasting vegetables intensifies their flavors. Tomatoes become sweeter.
Here I've paired the tomato with one of its best friends - basil. They are a match made in heaven. I've also included balsamic vinegar, which is another friend of the tomatoes.
For those of you who are not only vegan, but are also gluten free, I know finding a good tasting baguette can be difficult. I have been making mine out of Pamela's pizza mix. I love the texture and the flavor.
One of my favorite ways to eat it is with roasted garlic mayo on top. It reminds me of garlic bread, but without the vegan buttery spread (aka Earth Balance).
