Bruschetta with sun dried tomatoes

I am a huge fan of tennis and Rafa’s!! πŸ™‚ who ever enjoys tennis would know who he his..:), I played tennis most of my life and would have continued to play if I wasn’t hit by a car a couple of years ago…but that’s another story and I won’t go into that now, I am fine no issues with my arm I just can’t play anymore.

Anyway, once the tennis season starts I am in front of the tv rooting for Rafa, and I kind of really get involved in the whole match by jumping when Rafa wins and maybe a bit of yelling after all I am a fan.Β Β hahaha πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚Β  Since the season has started I enjoy making appetisers to eat while I am watching the match or matches. I do enjoy watching other tennis players like Federer, Dimitrov Murray, Wawrinka, Tsonga Goffin, F. Fognini, Baghatis and many more.

So, this is one appetiser that I enjoy making, the combination of the sun dried tomatoes with olive oil, soooo yummy and one more appetiser which I will post later Oven Baked Feta Cheese.Β  πŸ™‚Β  Both delicious and quick I hope you enjoy this recipe πŸ™‚


Β Β 

  • 1 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves optional
  • 150 grams of Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons of Oregano
  • Salt
  • Sugar a pinch


  • Add tomatoes into a multi blender or a hand grind.
  • Continue by adding the salt, sugar and 1 tablespoon of oregano.
  • Add in half of the olive oil, garlic. Since I am not a fan of garlic I added garlic for the others who enjoy eating garlic.
  • Cut a nice piece of bread homemade if possible πŸ™‚ warm out of the oven add olive oil, tomato paste and top off with the rest of the oregano.

    Novak!!!!!! no way Vero hahahhaa. Well, that's ok we all have our favorites..Martina Navratilova, Chris Evert, Billy Jean King were the three tennis players I watched growing up in the states....Martina I have no words...She is and will always be for me one the best woman's tennis player along with the other two ladies. Now, I don't really watch women's tennis more men :) ..but I do like Halep :) sorry :)
    Hahaha 😁 yes, Novak 😁 To be honest, I watch more men as well than women. Women... Just because Czech can be pretty good πŸ˜πŸ™ˆ We should watch a match together! πŸ˜‰πŸŽ‰

    To be honest: I'm no tennis-fan. But I'm definitely a bruschetta-fan. And the dried tomatoes are a great alternative for the winter, when the tomatoes you get taste like water :) Thanks for sharing, Sophie!

    ahahha that's ok if your not a fan...but nice to know you enjoy bruschetta. :) I know I know...if you buy tomatoes and you have sunshine cut them in slices and leave them out near the sun Karin...they turn out wonderfully dry. :)
    Thank you, Sophie :)

    Oh thank you so much!!! :)
  • Bruschetta is one of my favourites! I have a recipe but yours sounds much, much, better. I got a Japanese pestle and mortar for Christmas so I am going to love using it to make this! Thank you for sharing it with us :):)

    Ohhhh I would love to see the Japanese pestle and mortar...:) Enjoy Margaret and thank you again. :)
    one of the days, I am doing a post about a day of eating out with hubby. By "one of these days" I mean when my head is clear enough to download pictures from my phone to my computer hahaha. If I can remember I will snap a picture of my pestle, and mortar, and post it with that post :):) just for you :):)

    Awww thank you :)
    Don't thank me yet hehehe. The way my mind has been lately, I might forget. OH if I do, you can always drop a comment that simply reads "pestle, and mortar" that will remind me, I'll edit it, and add them ;);) It's that or I'll have to pin a note to my clothes until I do the post heheheheehe :):)

    I have had the tennis channel on since early this morning, watching third round action! Also this weekend, NFL playoffs. I will be parked in front of the tv all three days!! Good thing since my body needs a break from all the activity last week. Your bruschetta is on the list of goodies to eat while cheering on Rafa :)

    Thank you Ursula :) How are you?
    I'm doing pretty well, keep on having problems with my wrist, sigh, I'm using a wrist brace for certain work, that has been helping a lot. How are you doing? πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—
    foodzesty 2 years ago
    Aww Ursuala is it Tendonites? I know the wrist is an issue...When I was working a few yrs ago as a sec....on the computer non stop for 8 hrs my wrist gave way and had to use a wrist brace....This takes time to pass....rest it as often as you can. :) and when you do I remember the dr told me to use a pillow to rest it try this maybe it will work for you too.
    I'm not sure, I thought it could be Tendonitis, I've had problems before. Good tip, thanks, will try it out with the pillow. Have to use the brace for typing on the computer, it does help. Hope you had a great weekend!πŸ˜—
    foodzesty 2 years ago
    If you've been typing for many hours well then it Tendonitis...It needs rest Ursula if you can avoid typing a few days to rest it that would be best for the wrist. Let me know how your doing via email..Hugs Sophie
    Thanks for your advice, really appreciate it! I'll email you. hugs
