These bruschettas are perfect for the summer, when you need a light and fresh dinner. The bread slices can be served whole or cut into small pieces and can be paired with a fresh summer salad. For a richer taste you can add cheeses or cured meat.

Heat one tablespoon of extra virgin oil in a non-stick pan. Place the aubergines in the pan and cook, turning once (about 3 minutes per side).

Remove the aubergines and place them in a dish, adding salt, pepper, and a drizzle of oil if needed.

Toast the bread slices in the same pan you have used for the aubergines.

Tips

You can bake the bread slices in the oven, especially in case you want to prepare bruschetta for more than 2 people. You can do the same with aubergines; just place the slice on a baking pan lined with parchment paper and a drizzle of oil. You can use grilled aubergines or other seasonal vegetables as you like, for example courgettes or bell peppers. You can also mix all of them.

You can use other dips and spreads as you like, such as basil pesto or olive paté. I have used “Pugliese” bread to prepare this bruschetta, you can use other types of bread but be sure to use quality bread.
