Cooking & Spirituality: Bruschetta

An appetizer, a snack or a meal

Bruschetta is a super easy, super delicious dish with only a few ingredients. If you’ve never cooked with sun-dried tomatoes before, this recipe introduces them to you. I’m sure that you’ll be impressed with the burst of intense flavor sun-dried tomatoes add to your dish.

This dish works great as an appetizer or a snack for a party, but with the bread, cheese and hearty tomatoes, it can be a meal in itself. Sometimes I will take the tomato mixture and serve it over pasta. Another way I have serve bruschetta is putting the mixture on top of pie crust and baking the whole thing — a pizza pie! It’s wonderful, so many ways, especially when served warm.

The list of ingredients is below, but before we dive into our bruschetta, we also want to share some scripture.

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me …

— Matthew 25:35-36

All you who are thirsty, come to the water!
You who have no money, come, buy grain and eat;
Come, buy grain without money, wine and milk without cost!

— Isaiah 55:1

Let’s look for opportunities to echo these words in our own lives.

May our love for God be present in this hurting broken world in which we live in today. Come to the table and let’s share each others words, kindness, peace and more importantly our love for one another.

So until next time, ciao and bon appetite!
