What could be better for an aperitif than Bruschetta! To change a bit from the classic Bruschetta, I made some delicious Cherry Tomatoes, Basil and Thyme Bruschetta.

Bruschetta, perfect for an aperitif!

Bruschetta are perfect for an aperitif. First of all, the bruschetta are 100% vegan and lactose free, if you do not add mozzarella as in some recipes. They are therefore suitable for many types of diet which is useful when you have guests with dietary restrictions.

Moreover, they are relatively healthy because they contain almost only tomatoes, which balances perfectly a classic aperitif often focused on fatty and salty foods.

The other advantage of bruschetta specific to the following recipe, and that you can kill two birds with one stone for an aperitif: I prepared a Homemade Hummus which I used to garnish my Cherry Tomato, Basil and Thyme Bruschetta.

This allows the cherry tomatoes to sit better on the slices of bread. And in addition, I can then serve the hummus on the side to accompany the aperitif!
