Hummus and Fried Tomatoes Bruschetta

As you may notice, we are in love with bruschetta because it’s a perfect appetizer and a great snack option. In addition, it’s always exciting to play with different ingredients and experiment with new recipes. That’s why we decided to create a vegetarian version that will have a uniquely robust flavor of fresh herbs and veggies.
Very happy, these Hummus and Fried Tomatoes bruschetta came out so delicious. As always, we tested a new recipe on our friends, and they loved it a lot! We served these bruschettas on a wine party, and they were an absolute hit! All of them were gone in a few minutes. Which is the best sign of a culinary success =)
