INGREDIENTS
Serves 12

  • 5 medium organic tomatoes
  • dash of freshly ground sea salt
  • dash of freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1½ teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 12-inch whole grain baguette
  • Olive oil
  • ⅓ cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Chop the tomatoes and place in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Add the salt, pepper, oregano, dried basil and vinegar to the bowl and mix well. Transfer to a mesh strainer and set it over a bowl for 12-15 minutes to drain off excess water.
  3. Slice the baguette into ½ inch thick rounds. Lightly grease a baking sheet with olive oil.
  4. Arrange the bread on the baking sheet. Brush a touch of olive oil over each slice. Bake until lightly golden, about 5 minutes.
  5. Remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool for 5 minutes, then arrange on your serving platter. Top each slice with a spoonful of the tomato mixture and sprinkle with the fresh basil leaves.
