Caprese Bruschetta (Bruschetta with Mozzarella)

This is the perfect appetizer to serve at your next family dinner, holiday gathering, or even at a weekend brunch! To be honest, I make this for myself all the time for movie nights too. It’s minimal effort and about 15-20 minutes of actual labor. You’ll definitely want to make it over and over again!

Vegan Mozzarella

There are a few options for you because luckily we live in a time where vegan versions of foods are abundant. You can either buy it as a grocery store or make it yourself!

Store bought: I highly recommend buying Miyoko’s fresh mozzarella cheese. It’s sooo similar to traditional mozzarella “di bufalo”. It is cashew-based, 100% vegan and is perfect for everything from pizzas to caprese salads and paninis. I’ve made it on pizza and it melts really nicely… and it BROWNS when you broil it in the oven. 10/10, highly recommend! Also, I am sure there are other options but ever since I tried Miyoko’s I never looked back.

Homemade: I have tried and tested a mozzarella recipe for a while now and I’m happy to present it to you all. I originally created it for grilled cheese sandwiches. I wanted something that melted and STRETCHED. This is it. Click here to head to the recipe

Tips to make the best Vegan Caprese Bruschetta

  1. Use quality olive oil. I personally love using O-LIVE olive oil. It’s as fresh as it gets and super flavorful.
  2. Cut tomatoes in half and scoop out the watery part of the tomato. This will prevent your bruschetta from being too watery.
  3. Make it ahead of time and let the flavors marinade for a few hours. It really makes a difference!
  4. I recommend using a baguette from a local bakery for best results. The bread can make or break this recipe! I love buying the French baguette from one of our local bakeries here in Sonoma County.
  5. Take it up a notch and spread some roasted garlic on that baby! If you’ve never tried roasted garlic, you’re in for a treat. Click here here for my roasted garlic butter recipe where you can find how to roast garlic.
