Vegan Kale Bruschetta










While I love intricate recipes with countless ingredients (truth), some of the most simplest of concepts are actually my personal favorites.. 


Cue the class vegan Kale Bruschetta with parmesan toast!


While I love bruschetta whenever dining out, until 4 years ago when I whipped up this recipe I had never made it. It’s by far on of the easiest recipes to throw together and the most tedious thing is just chopping the tomatoes! I know what you’re thinking, vegan bruschetta? All bruschetta is vegan. That is correct, but sometimes the bread it’s served upon is not and I aim to distinguish all recipes as animal product free!









What’s wonderful about classic bruschetta is that it’s a definite crowd pleaser whether you’re vegan or not! It also looks gorgeous, involves a handful of ingredients, effortless, more nutrient dense in that it packs kale, his a hint of onion from the shallots which I love, offers a hint of sweetness with a classic balsamic glaze and is served on baked french bread with parmesan cheese!. 









If you’re a lover of all things tomatoes or simply love fresh nutrient dense recipes, you have to try my modern Kale Bruschetta!!










Why this recipe is great:





Tomatoes are coming in season (more flavorful)


Hint of sweetness w/balsamic glaze & red onion


Great for entertaining

Vegan cheesy garlic bread
