Bruscheta, tomatos and basil Jamie Oliver recipes











I always love basil, how  smell, the tasty, and miss when I dont have fresh basil,  it is this  things of the summer you really love:)

I have some pots  plants with basil although you can find in this time in stores but I love when I smell them and If I need  I cut some leaves in the moment.
I love with some cheese too.
This simple and lovely  bruschetta recipe is from Jamie Oliver .
I love his recipes.
It's perhaps the best bruschetta of all, and perfect for serving with drinks before a meal instead of serving as a starter.
(this was my lunch today LOL)

Ingredients


6 red  ripe plum or other  tomatoes
a small bunch of fresh basil, leaves

 sea salt and
freshly ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil
ciabatta loaf or some country bread
garlic cloves mashed or garlic powder
 

Method


 
The bread is really important. Have a look around a farmers’ market or in a good supermarket and you should be able to find some. If you can't, a good-quality round country-style loaf will give you good results.

If you have a large loaf, cut it in half, then slice it crossways about a half-inch thick. 
Preheat the oven about 180°c.
Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle garlic powder or spread some mashed garlics.

Grill these slices until they are crisp on both sides.

Make sure your tomatoes are really ripe when making this topping. Give them a wash, remove their cores,taste.
For these bruschettas I cut in slices but You can serve the tomatoes either chunky or finely chopped.
Seasoning with sea salt and black pepper and add some basil leaves.
Serve warm with a glass of white wine (sauvignon blanc is my favorite)
or with a red wine you love.

Bruschetta con tomates y albahaca
(Jamie Oliver recipes)









 Me encanta Jamie Oliver no solo por sus recetas, me gusta como es, como se relaciona con la gente y la comida.
Y sus recetas me encanta, he hecho varias y son super buenas.
La bruschetta es una de mis preferidas, como dice Delia Smith es impresionante como algo simple puede ser tan delicioso.
Quizas el secreto está en como se prepara, con el cuidado que se hace y por supuesto, el mejor pan, aceite de oliva, ricos tomates y albahaca, eso es todo.

Ingredientes

 6 tomates maduros cortados en rodajas finas.
1   puñado de hojas de albahaca
pimienta negra molida
sal de mar
aceite de oliva
pan italiano o ciabatta o baguette
dientes de ajo machacados o ajo en polvo

Preparación

Precalentar el horno a 180°c.
Cortar el pan en rodajas y poner en una bandeja de horno.
Pintar o untar con aceite las rodajas de pan.
Despues de un rato espolvorear con ajo o esparcir el ajo machado.
Cuando esten crujientes retirar y reservar.
Cortar los tomatos y repartir sobre los panes, agregar un poco de sal y pimienta. y encima las hojas de albahaca.
Tambien se le puede agregar un poco de queso encima de los tomates.
Servir inmediatamente.
 Es bueno como una entrada o como lunch.
