Moroccan Mint Tomato & Mozzarella Bruschetta
Recipe type: Appetizer
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh mozzarella, chopped
  • ¾ cup cucumber, chopped (approximately 1 cucumber)
  • 1 tbsp mint, chopped
  • 1 tbsp basil, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)
  • ½ cup steeped Numi Moroccan Mint tea
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 24 baguette slices, toasted
  1. Heat a large saute pan over medium/medium-low heat, add the butter and cook the onion until caramelized (about 15 minutes); let cool.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the tomatoes, mozzarella, cucumber, mint, basil and cooled onions; add the olive oil, salt and pepper; toss and set aside (at this point you can refrigerate this mixture if you aren't going to make the sauce immediately).
  3. In a saucepan, over low heat, add the Numi Moroccan Mint tea, balsamic vinegar and brown sugar; cook over low until the brown sugar melts (about 5 minutes); bring the sauce to a boil; reduce the heat to a simmer and cook 8-10 minutes (or until thickened and reduced by half).
  4. To serve, place the toasted baguette slices on a platter, top with a heaping spoonful of the tomato and mozzarella mixture and drizzle with the reduced Numi Moroccan Mint balsamic glaze.
