This bruschetta tastes absolutely delicious, a welcome change from the usual fare. It is sweet and spicy and salty, all at once, and is a great way to use up the last bits of any tangy marmalade that you might have lying around in your kitchen. Do try out this lemon marmalade & stir-fried veggie bruschetta as a snack or side. It is super easy to make!
Lemon marmaladeas needed (Any tangy marmalade would do)
Chilli powderto taste
Grated cheddar cheeseas needed
Mixed Italian herbsas needed
Sun-dried tomato-infused olive oilas needed
Let us first get the stir-fried veggies ready. Heat the olive oil a bit, and add in the chopped onion, mushrooms and baby corn.
Add salt and red chili powder to taste. Mix well.
Stir fry the veggies till they are cooked, but not overly mushy. Switch off the gas. Mix in a little mixed Italian herbs.
Allow the stir-fried veggies to cool down a bit, while you get the base ready. For this, cut each slice of bread into half.
Heat a pan till droplets of water dance on it. Place four pieces of bread on it. Drizzle some sun-dried tomato-infused olive oil over one side of the bread. Toast.
Flip the bread pieces over to the other side. Drizzle some more sun-dried tomato-infused olive oil. Toast some more. Switch off gas and place the bread pieces in a serving plate.
Prepare all the bread pieces in a similar way.
Spread lemon marmalade evenly over the toasted bread pieces. Use as much or as little as you want. Spread the veggies on top, and add some grated cheese. Add a dash of paprika and mixed Italian herbs.
