Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper dices
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms , sliced and barely chopped, about 10
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 long loaf of Italian bread for slicing

Instructions

To make the bruschetta:

  • Heat the coconut oil in a large skillet and sauté the onion and red bell pepper for 10 minutes.
  • Add the cremini mushrooms and sauté 10 to 15 minutes more.
  • The mushrooms will shrink and add moisture to the mixture.
  • Season with the salt and pepper. Set aside.

To make Crostini

  • Slice a long baguette loaf (or use pre-sliced)
  • Lightly brush oil on each slice and place on a cookie sheet.
  • Fill up the cookie sheet in a single layer.
  • Set oven to broil and toast on the top shelf under the broiler. Do not walk away - watch the toast closely.
  • Remove from the oven as soon as the toasts turn a golden brown.
  • Spoon bruschetta onto the toasted bread slices and serve.
  • I used pinches of fresh parsley to garnish the tops.

Notes

TO FREEZE:
If freezing - Cool completely to room temperature. Put in a freezer container as defined in my article Preparing Food for the Freezer
TO PREPARE AFTER FREEZING:
Remove from the freezer and put in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours. Zap in the microwave for a few seconds to take the chill off.
Prepare the crostini toasts as described above. Put some bruschetta on each toast and serve.
