Let’s talk bruschetta. Bru-‘shet-ta? Or bru-‘sket-ta?
Technically, the latter is the correct pronunciation; however, when I order it, I never say it that way. I think it makes me look like a stuck up food snob trying to be Italian.
When really, I’m just a short Asian girl who is freaking in love with this stuff. I’m not sure why this simple dish does it for me, but it does.
I love me some fresh bread topped with chopped tomatoes, olive oil, basil and garlic garlic garlic.
Now I’m all hyped up on bruschetta and I didn’t even make bruschetta. BUT this bruschetta-inspired lentil dip is just as good. (And possible even better with the fiber and nutrients from the lentils!)
I first had this dip from one of my friends and have made it multiple times since.
It is the easiest dip, and you only need these ingredients to make it- Steamed Lentils, Bruschetta Sauce, Feta Cheese and Basil… all bought from my favorite, Trader Joe’s.
All you need to do is toss together the lentils, cheese, chopped basil and bruschetta sauce and voila! Serve with a sliced baguette, cucumber slices or other veggies.
Simple to make; delicious and healthy for all!
