Bruschetta with sun dried tomatoes

I am a huge fan of tennis and Rafa’s!! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.ย ย hahaha ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ย  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.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Both delicious and quick I hope you enjoy this recipe ๐Ÿ™‚



  • 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ warm out of the oven add olive oil, tomato paste and top off with the rest of the oregano.

  7. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing, Sophie!

  9. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

      • 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 :):)
