Avocado Basil Bruschetta with Balsamic Glaze

Growing up I have always hated tomatoes, but finally my tastebuds are maturing. This tasty bruschetta recipe is super easy and great for bringing to a party or as a snack at home. You can purchase balsamic glaze premade or make it yourself- I have included a glaze recipe too!

What you need:

  • 1 baguette, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1 avocado (diced)
  • Sea salt and ground pepper
  • Chopped fresh basil leaves

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place baguette slices onto parchment paper. Brush with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Place into oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • To make the balsamic glaze, add balsamic vinegar and brown sugar to a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a slight boil and reduce by half, about 6-8 minutes. Let cool for a couple minutes.
  • Combine tomatoes, avocado, remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Top each baguette slice with tomato mixture, garnished with basil.
  • Serve immediately, drizzled with balsamic glaze.

Enjoy!
