Health Highlights


1 thin slice Rye bread (or choice of bread)
0.12 small Turnip (roasted)
1/4 beet(s) Beets, raw (roasted)
1/4 parsnip(s) Parsnip (roasted)
1 pinch Sea Salt
1 dash Black pepper
1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp Balsamic vinegar (to taste)
1 clove(s) Garlic (unpeeled, halved)
2 sprig Parsley, Italian, fresh
1/2 cup Lettuce, spring mix (mesclun) (washed, spun dry)
3 leaf Mint, fresh
1 medium Lemon
1 tsp Parmesan cheese, grated, low fat


Pop the bread on a hot griddle pan and toast it on both sides. While that’s happening, use the back of a fork or knife to roughly mash up the roasted vegetables on a wooden board. Season with salt and pepper, drizzle over some extra virgin olive oil and a little splash of balsamic, then mash again.

Once your bread has nice char marks on both sides, rub the cut garlic clove all over it for flavour then spoon the mashed vegetables on top. Finely chop the parsley and scatter that on top.

Toss the salad and mint leaves in a bowl with a good pinch of salt, a splash of extra virgin olive oil, a drizzle of balsamic and a squeeze of lemon juice. Put a pinch of the salad leaves on top of the bruschetta then shave over some Parmesan. Finish with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and serve right away with the rest of the salad on the side.
