Ingredients

From TSTE®
1 TBS TSTE® Tuscany Spice Blend
2 tsp TSTE® Tomato Powder
½ cup TSTE® Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tsp TSTE® Black Truffle Sea Salt 

From the Grocer
3 (medium) round tomatoes, chopped                
3 TBS balsamic vinegar
1 cup onion, diced                                                                          
2 TBS fresh basil, chopped (2 tsp TSTE® Basil if fresh is unavailable)
1 (16 ounce) loaf Italian bread, cut diagonally into 1” slices
8 oz Gouda cheese, sliced

 

Preparation

PREHEAT oven to 400°F.
COMBINE tomatoes, vinegar, onion, basil, TSTE® Tuscany Spice Blend, and TSTE® Tomato Powder in a medium bowl.
PLACE bread slices on a baking sheet and use a basting brush to brush each with TSTE® Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Sprinkle TSTE® Black Truffle Sea Salt evenly amongst slices.
BAKE in oven until bread is slightly browned; about 5 mins.
TOP each slice with about ¼ cup of the tomato mixture.
PLACE a slice of Gouda cheese on each and bake for 7-9 mins.
COOL, serve, and enjoy! Garnish with additional TSTE® Tuscany Spice Blend or TSTE® Black Truffle Sea Salt if desired.
*For a lighter option: replace Gouda with shredded mozzarella or hummus (underneath the tomatoes).
