Recipe: Fresh Tomato, Basil and Garlic Dip

tomato basil and garlic dipSo, you’ve just made a wonderful fresh tomato and basil bruschetta, but you’re now wondering what to do with the discarded bits of tomato that you didn’t use. I always wondered the same thing and felt there must be something I could do with them other than throw them away. So I came up with this wonderfully fragrant, tasty and healthy fresh tomato dip. It goes wonderfully spread onto bread and topped with the bruschetta topping, or simply as a dipping sauce.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • the unused bits of tomato from the bruschetta recipe
  • 2 medium sized garlic gloves
  • bunch of fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • (optional) half a small onion


Place all the ingredients into a small mixing bowl and, using a hand-blender, blend until completely smooth. Taste and ensure there is enough seasoning. Place in a small serving bowl and leave in the fridge until serving. Just before serving, drizzle the bowl with some fresh olive oil and enjoy!
