Tummy friendly Bruschetta al pomodoro

I love love bruschetta al pomodoro. It’s that mixture of lovely fresh ripe tomatoes, oregano, basil, olive oil and garlic that makes it so tasty. But some people are sensitive to garlic as it’s one of those foods that can upset a sensitive gut. My way around this is to substitute the garlic and olive oil with garlic infused oil instead. It works really well and you’ll be supriced how much garlic favour the garlic infused oil will provide without upsetting your gut. I make this dish for lunch on a regular basis as it’s quick, healthy and very tasty.

I tend to serve the tomato mix on homemade gluten free bread. I actually cheat a little by using a bread machine a relative gave me for christmas. Prior to being given this machine I must admit that I was’t keen on using one. I liked making my own bread by hand, but as you know, it does take some time to make bread this way, time which I did’t have that often which meant I  often ended up buying gluten free bread instead of making it. Now that I have the bread machine I hardly ever buy gluten free bread because it’s so easy to make it in the machine. You simply pop in all the ingredients and press a button. A couple of hours later your freshly made bread is ready and it’s looovely. By making it myself I know exactly what goes into it and I can add lots of seeds and nuts to make it more tasty and healthy. I would definitely recommend investing in a bread machine. It’s honestly one of my best gifts of all times 🙂
