Cream Cheese and Pesto Bruschetta with Fresh Basil Flowers

"Worldcup ? is in full swing. Sweden is through hooray, England is playing today Columbia. Come on England! Simona Halep is doing great at Wimbledon. Go on Simona! ? Bring on the food, please, bring on the quick n’ yummy cream cheese and pesto bruschetta! Go on and make as many as you can gobble, they are soo delish! Glorious stuff! A crispy bruschetta topped with cream cheese, pesto and pan fried tomato is a great starter and always such a breakfast winner."

NotesFor the creme cheese I normally use Philadelphia light or original but a nice creamy Greek style yoghurt is also very nice.
Whenever I make my pesto sauce I always make some extra and keep it in an airtight jar in the fridge - it can last for a good few days. You could freeze it too but I personally don’t like that. I love it fresh, fresh fresh.
My love for pesto sauce originates a good while back and I love it because it is super delicious, healthy and soo versatile since it can be served with so many dishes, in so many ways and at any time in the day. I mean it. Throw a poached egg on and ... oh, la la! Perfect breakfast or even lunch, right?

Serves4 People

Preparation Time5 min

Cooking Time5 min

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp pesto sauce homemade
  • 8 slices nice and crusty bruschetta or 4 slices of bread
  • 4 tbsp cream cheese any that you like *
  • 2 tomatoes cut into quarters or 8 cherry tomatoes halved
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Fresh Basil flowers or basil leaves to garnish
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts or sunflower seeds toasted optional

Instruction

  1. Wash and cut each tomato into quarters. Place in a pan with a tiny drizzle of olive oil. Allow to cook covered on medium heat for 1 min. Turn the tomatoes and cook for 1 min on each side. Drizzle more oil if you find it necessary. Cook until the tomatoes begin to soften but don’t over cook them. Once ready, set aside.

  2. Toast the bread in toaster or oven if you are making more than two people.

  3. Spread the creme cheese equally between the slices.

  4. Add a layer of pesto sauce over the creme cheese topped by 2 pieces of tomatoes.

  5. Garnish with some freshly chopped basil leaves or some basil flowers, some toasted pine nuts or simply some toasted sunflower seeds. Enjoy ??
