Easy Bruschetta with Endives

So I might be late in the game, but I only recently learned that Bruschetta is pronounced (brus-sketta) and not (bru-shetta). This entire time I have been pronouncing it wrong! Who knew! Did you know?? Now that I know how to pronounce bruschetta, it is deemed appropriate for me to share an all time favorite recipe of how I like to make it.

I love enjoying it with a nice piece of bread, crackers, or in this case endives. Endives have sooo many health benefits, and although they have a bit of a bitter taste, this bruschetta recipe compliments it and creates a well balance of flavors with the sweetness of the cherry tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. The best part is it literally takes 5 minutes to whip up and makes a perfect light lunch, or an appetizer to impress your friends and family at any gathering. Feel free to double or triple the recipe. I hope you try it and love it as much as I do, and if you do, please comment below and let me know your thoughts.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 2Total Time: 5 minutes
1 cup sweet cherry tomatoes
1 endive
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
pinch of salt and pepper
1 tsp minced garlic (*preferably from a jar)
(if using fresh garlic, mince 1 small clove)
1. Slice cherry tomatoes in half, place in a medium bowl.
2. Add balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic and stir.
3. Wash the endives and pull the leaves apart, patting them dry with a paper towel.
4. Decorate the endive leaves on a plate. Serve and enjoy immediately.
Bone appetit!

Hello and welcome to my site! My name is Rips and I am thrilled to share my passion with you! I am just a girl who loves to bake and cook. It’s one of my favorite things to do and is rewarding in so many ways! It teaches me to be present and helps me relieve stress. I grew up watching both my parents cook the most delicious food you could possibly imagine! Cooking healthy food for each other was something we did for the ones we cared about. Shortly after, I picked up on that habit. I come from a Mediterranean background and I bring that to a lot of my recipes with lots of modern adaptations. I have been baking and cooking for over 15 years and truly find the most joy in it! I also recently wrote and self published my first recipe book called Ripsy's Recipe's on Amazon (I will link below). Ripsy's Recipes has some amazing healthy recipes with gluten free and vegan options that everyone can enjoy. I really wanted to create an easy to follow, non intimidating healthy recipe book for you to love. It truly is my go-to for quick, healthy, easy, delicious meals! The best part of making food is I get to eat it and feed my loved ones. I am very mindful of the ingredients I use in my recipes; at the same time; I still like to indulge in dessert! My dessert recipes are lower in sugar than in any recipe or store bought dessert you will ever find (and they taste amazing). As a result, my family and I get to enjoy it without the guilt. My greatest joy comes from sharing what I make with the people I care about most, and now, you will have access to that too. I hope you try my recipes and love them as much as my family and I do! Namaste Friends!
