Tomato-Artichoke Bruschetta

Tomato-Artichoke Bruschetta  Dinner of Herbs.jpg

For the last two Christmases, my family has gotten this jar of artichoke, tomato bruschetta.

It is amazing.
Since it is on the more expensive side, I decided to try and make my own homemade version.
The result? Pretty close! It isn’t exactly the same, but it think I could have gotten even closer if I had some fresh parsley on hand.

By using half sundried tomatoes and half fresh tomatoes, it is slightly healthier AND cheaper. I consider that a double win. I also love the juiciness of the fresh tomato as you bite into them. Tastier too? Triple win!
I had this bruschetta over chicken to make it more of a meal, instead of eating it with crackers. Both are delicious. If you decide to eat it with chicken, I simply flavored mine with salt, pepper, olive oil, and basil.

The Recipe

1 14oz can artichoke hearts, drained and rinsed
3 Tbsp sundried tomatoes packed on olive oil
1/3 c cherry tomatoes, diced
2 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Servings: 4
Roughly chop the drained artichoke hearts and place in a medium sized bowl. Chop the sundried tomatoes and add to the bowl with a small drizzle of the olive oil. Add the diced cherry tomato, vinegar, lemon juice, and garlic. Toss and serve. Enjoy!

  1. the DIYs are always so rewarding! Looks fantastic. On another note: I shopped an Asian market last night and purchased enoki, oyster, and shiitake mushrooms. Let the fun begin 😀 Appreciate your inspiration.

    1. Oooo! What did you make? Those sounds like great ingredients. I haven’t had any Japanese food in about a month, so now I am going through slight withdrawal. I might try making some solely on my own, without my brother’s help in the near future.

  2. This has been very beautifully prepared, I love the bright splash of color the tomatoes give the dish! I’ll definitely have to try making this soon; I like fact that it can be served as both a meal with chicken or an appetizer with crackers. Thanks for sharing!
