One summer we were introduced to bruschetta at a family pool party.
And I couldn’t wait to come home and make a safe, dairy-free version for my kids.
After all, we had plenty of basil and tomatoes growing in the garden.
Turns out, my kids loved our dairy-free version.
And my pickiest kiddo the next year asked for this snack again when he saw basil and tomatoes growing.
You got it, buddy!
Mom is happy to make you this healthy snack you call “tomato dip”. HA!
When we first made dairy-free bruschetta,
I knew it would be hard to find a dairy-free baguette from the store not contaminated with or containing our allergens, milk and nut.
So we opted for the next best thing, serving our tomato dip on crunchy Stacy’s Pita Chips (affiliate).
Check labels, ingredients can change.
But NOW, we make an amazing homemade french bread that would work wonderfully for dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free bruschetta.
Thank you, 2020 quarantine, for motivating me to come up with this exciting new bread recipe.
For french bread bruschetta: make the bread, slice it, brush oil on both sides of the slices, and toast the slices in the oven on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes…flipping half way through. Serve with the tomato mixture on top.
OR, we have also found another shortcut, dairy-free of course.
Hubby keeps picking up milk-free bagel chips (affiliate) to eat with our tomatoes and basil.
That works, too!
Again, check labels for yourself.
Now here’s the easy recipe for our dairy-free bruschetta.
You’re gonna love it and so will your kids!
1 large tomato chopped
1 Tbs. fresh basil finely chopped
2 Tbs. olive oil
2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. minced garlic
Salt to taste
Combine all ingredients.
Serve on top of dairy-free pita chips, bagel-chips, or toasted french bread.
Hope you love this dairy-free bruschetta as much as we do!
