Halloumi Bruschetta

First time I had a tomato Bruchetta (pronounced "brusketta") at an Italian restraurant & fell in love with the freshness & the simplicity of the recipe (and the best-est part being it can be prepared within 10mins) Although the traditional tomato bruchetta has basil in it I just added my favourite Halloumi cheese to this recipe along with some Indian flavours like onion & capsicum.This can be eaten as a starter or an afternoon snack.Kids are surely going to fall for its rich colours & the cheese

100gms Halloumi cheese
1½ tomato
½ capsicum
½ onion
few parsley leaves
olive oil as required
salt as per taste
freshly ground pepper
1 clove of garlic (sliced into half)
Bruschetta bread ½ loaf
finely chop the tomatoes (squeezing the seeds and water from it), add finely chopped onion and capsicum.Mix olive oil, salt and pepper & finely chopped parsley.Toss this mixture well and keep aside for all the flavours to combine well
Grill the halloumi cheese cutting it into squares of the similar size of that of the bruschetta slice
grill it until it take this colour
now preheat oven to 180°C, slice the bread diagonally with ½ inch thickness, toast the bread from both sides and brush one of the side with the mixture of olive oil and garlic
After the slices are grilled, arrange the slice of halloumi cheese and on top of it heap the veggie topping
If Halloumi cheese is not available, grill the bread and spoon out the topping of the veggies over it, and serve immediately, for the bread might turn soggy!
Buon Appetito!
