We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. But we need to be careful about how much fat we eat and what kinds of fat, because in higher levels it’s associated with weight gain, diabetes, cancer and heart disease

Method

The word ‘bruschetta’ comes from the Italian word ‘bruscare’, which basically means to char. As long as you’ve got some raw garlic to rub on the ’pane bruscato’ (toasted bread) and some good olive oil, you can make bruschetta. Anything you put on top after that, from leftover meat, shellfish or even simple anchovies – will be delicious. One of my favourite combos is leftover lamb, fresh mint and a splash of sherry vinegar… come on!

These roasted vegetable bruschetta are delicious and easy. All you have to do is season and dress the leftover roasted veggies carefully to bring them back to life and you’ve got a perfect snack or light lunch.


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 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.
