Cooking with kids: Bruschetta

We made a delicious lunch with the kids this past week, and thought you might like to try making it at home with your kids. So here is our child-friendly recipe for bruschetta. The steps marked in bold are for adults only. 

3 baguettes
6 tomatoes
2 or 3 stalks of basil
Medium-sized bunch of parsley
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
1 packed mozzarella cheese
2 to 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
Butter and olive oil

Peel and mince the garlic.
Mince the parsley.
Cut the mozzarella into rounds.

Wash the tomatoes, and halve them.
Mince them into small dice.

Pick the basil leaves off the stem.
Mince them the same size as the parsley.

Slice the baguette and butter the slices.
Lay a round of mozzarella on each slice.

Mix all the other ingredients together, and add a couple of spoons of olive oil to bind.

Place the mixture on the slices.

Enjoy this summery meal!
