Happy sunny Wednesday guys! Today’s recipe is Strawberry Bruschetta with Paneer – light, fruity and absolutely delicious, perfect for the hot weather!
My original idea was to make panini (hence the panini bread I used) but I decided to go for Strawberry Bruschettas instead. And these beautiful bruschettas didn’t disappoint at all. The Paneer cheese I used really complimented the strawberries. It was very mild and had crumbly texture, more like cottage cheese. I haven’t used Paneer cheese like this before but it worked really well so I’m glad I did. 🙂
The bruschettas are super simple to make. I toasted the bread first with a bit of olive oil, then added the strawberries, paneer and some fresh basil and left in the oven for another five minutes. The result was absolute deliciousness. 🙂 The strawberries were so sweet and juicy and tasted amazing with the paneer and basil. I feel like every time the weather gets really hot my favourite things to eat are strawberries and tomatoes. 🙂 And basil is my number one summer herb. 🙂 I’d really love to be able to grow my own fruit, veg and herb one day. That would be so exciting! 🙂 However, at the moment I use the shops for fresh fruit and veg.
These bruschettas are a great appetizer too. I’m pretty sure your friends/guests would be really please if you serve them these with a glass of champagne. 🙂 This is how I should’ve had them. 🙂 And as I said, they’re great to have as a light lunch on a really hot day like today. 🙂 Not that I’m complaining about the weather. I love it! 🙂
