Bruschettas ( Healthy Diabetic Cooking )

Cubes of firm ripe red tomatoes marinated in olive oil, combined with fresh aromatic basil leaves topped on crispy bruschettas, serve as starters that can liven up any dinner party! To get the full flavour, marinate the topping well. Ensure that you deseed the tomatoes; else the topping will become watery and the bread will become soggy.

Whole wheat bread is full of fibre as it is made using whole wheat flour. The garlic paste applied on the bread, apart from lending the dish the health benefits of garlic, also imparts a good flavour.
