A Simple Summer Snack: Pesto + Bruschetta Flatbread
At Summer’s peak, we love to stick with simple recipes in the kitchen! Whether it’s throwing something together for unexpected guests or a snack for the kiddos between jumps in the pool, we find it’s always handy to have a few quick and easy throw together recipes in our repertoire.
This week we’re sharing a staff favourite and one you may have sampled last year while visiting Anna’s!
PESTO & BRUSCHETTA FLATBREAD RECIPE:
- 1 Package of Naan Bread: If you’re unfamiliar with naan, it is an Indian style flatbread: soft, pillowy, and full of lovely bubbles!
- 1 Jar of Garlic Scape & Kale Pesto by The Garlic Box
- 1 Jar of Oven-Roasted Tomato & Basil Bruschetta by Wildly Delicious
- Parmesan Cheese
Simply take 2-3 teaspoons of the pesto and spread it on the Naan bread, then 2 teaspoons of bruschetta spread on top of that and sprinkle parmesan cheese to taste.
Place your Naan bread in the toaster oven set at 300°F for 15 minutes or until lightly toasted and voila, a delicious summer snack!
