For the third and final dish of my low-sodium series for the San Diego 6 Morning Show, I chose to make my famous tomato basil bruschetta recipe. I skipped the cheese and replaced the baguette it’s traditionally served on for fillo baskets!
One small slice of a baguette can cost you almost 400 mg of sodium, where as one fillo basket has only 10 mg, talk about a super swap!
- 4 roma tomatoes (chopped)
- 1/2 red onion (chopped)
- 3 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1 tbsp fresh basil (chopped)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 15 fillo baskets
Combine the first 7 ingredients in a small bowl.
Spoon the bruschetta into the fillo baskets and serve.
Yes, it’s really that easy!
They are healthy, vegan and perfect for parties!
♣ Vegetarian Option: This recipe is vegetarian (and vegan!)
♦ Gluten Free Option: Replace the fillo baskets with strips of red bell pepper to make this recipe gluten-free.
