Description

Beets electrify classic Italian bruschetta, bringing not only glorious color but earthy sweetness and nutrition too!

Ingredients

  • 3 whole Small Beets
  • 3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Divided
  • ¼ cups Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • 2 pints Cherry Tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons Fresh Garlic, Finely Chopped
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 12 leaves Basil
  • 1 loaf Sourdough Baguette

Preparation

For the beets:

Do this step a day or two before you plan to serve the bruschetta: Preheat oven to 400°F. Wash beets well, cut off greens, and place on a sheet of aluminum foil. Add 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, wrap tightly, and place in oven. Roast for 1 hour.

Remove beets from oven, and open aluminum foil. Let sit until cool enough to handle, about 20 minutes. Peel beets by pressing the skin off. It should come off easily. Reserve to a container until ready to use.

For the bruschetta:
Turn on oven broiler, and ready a sheet pan.

Place balsamic vinegar and sugar in the smallest saucepan you have. Turn on medium-high heat, and let balsamic mixture reduce by half, about 5–7 minutes. The mixture should be the consistency of warm syrup, slightly viscous. It will thicken as it cools. Set aside.

Dice tomatoes and beets into 1/4-inch dice, and place in a medium bowl. Add finely diced garlic, salt, and 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil. Mix well.

Take all the basil leaves and stack them on top of each other. Roll lengthwise into a cigar, and slice as thinly as you can with a very sharp knife. This is called a chiffonade. You’ve made tiny little basil ribbons!

Cut baguette into 1/2-inch rounds on a bias, and place on sheet pan. Drizzle with remaining tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, and toast under broiler for 1–2 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip and toast the other side.

Carefully place a heaping teaspoon of bruschetta mixture on your rounds, and place on a serving platter. Drizzle rounds with balsamic reduction, and then sprinkle with basil chiffonade. Serve!
