Kiwi Bruschetta

What an easy way to tuck into your favorite comfort food! I grew up in a small town, Agra, where exotic fruits were, till about 15 years ago, unseen and unheard of. So I only saw Kiwi when we would travel to New Delhi,  where we would see fruits and vegetables which were not available in our sleepy town. Among these was the fruit I took some time to like. The almost sour taste of Kiwi took some getting used to, but eventually, I fell in love with this fruit. 

Like I mentioned before, I like to make Bruschetta from just about anything. And Kiwi, with a hint of Cream Cheese, topped with mint is fruit lover's heaven. I love how this looks, and tastes. The family loved it. I loved it. And since that day, it has found it's way back into our meals, for an evening snack, or a late night bite. There really is no specific time to have this Bruschetta. Just chop a Kiwi, and get going any time you want a quick, wholesome snack.

Ingredients
2 Green Kiwis, diced
A few sprigs of mint, chopped fine
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil  
Some sea salt
Some ground pepper
Baguette, cut it diagonally into small pieces 
Cream Cheese
Unsalted Butter




Preparation
  • Mix all the ingredients together.
  • Add in olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Spread some butter on baguette, toast it for 3 minutes. 
  • Spread some cream cheese on each slice.
  • Pile as much of the bruschetta as possible onto the freshly toasted bread. Garnish with mint and serve! 




 HEALTH NOTE:
Kiwi fruits are rich in many Vitamins, flavonoids and minerals. In particular, they contain a high amount of Vitamin C (more than oranges), as much potassium as bananas and a good amount of beta-carotene.
