Bruschetta Al Tonno

Brunch is served with Bruschetta Al Tonno. Otherwise known as ‘Marinated Tomatoes and Tuna Creme on Crisp Bread’, this is a perfect dish to serve for brunch (and so easy to make using your stick blender).This recipe will work with any tomato variety, just make sure to always use fresh and ripe ones and if you are not a fan of spring onions, you can swap them for chopped chives.

Great with our Baguette (French Bread) recipe.
