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.

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

  • 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! 

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.
