Sweet Corn and Tomato Brushetta

Ingredients to make Sweet Corn and Tomato Brushetta

  • 1 Baguette (i have used multi-grain baguette with oats and flax seeds)
  • 1/2 cup boiled sweet corn kernels.(i have boiled kernels for 3-4 minutes in microwave oven)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped ripe tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup cubed red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped coriander
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • Freshly crushed black pepper as per taste
  • salt to taste

How to make Sweet Corn and Tomato Brushetta

  1. Slice the baguette using a knife.
  2. Place the slices of bread on a baking tray and brush it with olive oil. Toast the slices in a preheated oven for 4-5 minutes. I have grilled the baguette slices in a convection microwave oven for 4 minutes on high rack using grill mode.
  3. While the bread slices are getting toasted we will prepare the topping. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a pan . Add onions and allow them to sweat.
  4. Now add red bell peppers and saute for about a minute on high flame. Add boiled sweet corn kernels and saute for another 30 seconds.
  5. Remove the sauteed veggies in a mixing bowl. Add tomatoes, coriander , orange zest . Mix well Season the salad with salt and freshly crushed black pepper. Toss well. Do a taste test here and add any seasonings if required .
  6. When the toasted bread slices are brown and still hot , rub the peeled garlic cloves on to the slices. This will infuse lovely flavor to the bread.
  7. Now place a tablespoon of prepared bruschetta topping on each bread slice and our flavorful sweet corn and tomato bruschetta is ready to serve .

My Tip:

The baguette slices can be toasted ahead of time , but once the salad topping is added to the toasted slices, serve immediately as the bread may turn soggy. You may add grated cheese over the topping if desired. Sauteing the veggies is optional , you make keep it raw if you like it. If you do not have baguette , you may use regular whole wheat or multi grain bread slices, cut it to bite size pieces and toast it.
