I've never been a huge tomato fan. To me they always were tasteless and never appealed to me. I liked salsa + tomato sauce for pasta but that was it. So why am I sharing a recipe that consists of mostly tomatoes you ask...Well I recently started a big raised bed garden and I decided to grow cherry tomatoes! They taste better and of course fresher. It's an amazing feeling to be able to walk to your own garden and pick what you need for your recipes.
I have recently embarked on a 30 Rebirth Journey working with a business coach and one of my tasks is to be consistent with meal prepping. My goal was/is to seek out simple vegan meals that are still healthy yet satisfying!
I am growing lots of herbs too and my basil plants are growing out of control so I thought to make bruschetta. You can enjoy this as breakfast, snack or a side dish! Here is my simple recipe, I hope you enjoy!!
