Bruschetta Alla Contadina

Bruschetta Alla Contadina

I like watching cooking shows and taking notes of recipes that people are so kind to share. I sourced this recipe from a show called Celebrity Come Dine With Me Australia which I have already made for a couple of dinner parties this summer. It’s a great entrée, especially for an Italian-themed menu.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cloves garlic
2 brown onions
150g button mushrooms
Olive oil
Bread, thick cut 4 slices
200g full cream ricotta
100g rocket
1 wedge of parmesan cheese
1 pear
Vincotto or Balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper

Method:
Crush 1 garlic clove. Finely chop onion and mushroom. Put a table spoon of olive oil into a hot pan and add the garlic. When garlic is slightly brown, add mushrooms. Cook mushrooms until browned. Remove and let cool in a bowl. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to hot pan and add onion, cook until golden brown. Place in a separate bowl to cool. Toast the bread.
Once bread is toasted drizzle olive oil over the bread. Rub 1/2 garlic clove over the toast for flavour. Spread a tablespoon of ricotta over toast. Spread onion and mushroom over the top. Sprinkle the rocket over the mushroom and onions. Shave parmesan over the top as desired. Shave the pear and place over the top for decoration. Drizzle Vincotto for added flavour. Salt and pepper as desired.
