Cooking -Simple Recipes











It was winter and raining too so it was freezing outside. I wanted to prepare something quick yet hot and tasty. After arriving to Australia, I had made up my mind to experiment with all the cuisines.

The previous night my partner and I were watching an English movie “Julie & Julia”. It is an American drama comedy movie starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams which shows about “Mastering the art of French cooking”. I was intrigued by the movie and thought I will prepare some dish which was shown in the movie.

I saw Amy Adams making “Tomato bruschetta” an Italian antipasto from Italy whose origin dates to at least the 15th century. It consists of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil, salt and pepper.

Simple Recipe


*8 thick slices French bread or Italian bread

*1 garlic clove, peeled, halved

*2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

*4 ripe tomatoes, diced

*1/2 cup basil leaves, shredded


-Preheat grill on medium-high heat. Grill both sides of bread slices until toasted. While hot, rub 1 side of each slice with cut garlic. Drizzle each with 1 teaspoon of oil.

-Spoon tomatoes onto bread. Sprinkle with basil. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Look how simple it is to prepare but tastes yummy and crispy. It is perfect for lunch, dinner or snacks. If you are a cheese lover you can add some cubes of cheese.
