It struck me recently that I didn't know the difference between those lovely Italian appetizers crostini and bruschetta. Crostini are smaller bits of toast, literally "little toasts" in Italian, with any topping you can imagine. Bruschetta (pronounced bru-sketta, for the record) means "to roast over coals" so these are toasted/grilled slices from larger bread that are drizzled with olive oil and rubbed with raw garlic. The raw garlic literally grates as you rub and you are left with a toasty, garlicy base for, again, any topping you can imagine. Here, I mixed chevre with lemon juice and thyme, and topped it with dressed beet greens for a light bruschetta snack.

The service's writers are available 24/7, so you can always count on a timely delivery of your paper.
You can also opt for a service that can do my paper for me cheaply, but only if you choose one that's reliable. Cheap writing services are unreliable and may not complete your project on time. Therefore, you must choose a reputable service that will do it on time and meets your needs. You may not want to spend too much on a cheap service that will only end up costing you more money in the long run.

Moreover, you need to ensure that the paper writer you're hiring is reputable and can deliver the type of work you need. There are many freelance writers online that will do the job for you, so you need to be sure that the writer you hire can deliver a quality paper. However, you should also check the online reviews of the company you're choosing before ordering from them. You should order research papers only when you're certain that the service you're choosing will meet your expectations.

Ingredients

  • 1 12 oz baguette, sliced on a diagonal (I got 22 pieces from mine)
  • 3 Tbsp EVOO, divided
  • 3 garlic cloves, divided
  • 8 oz chevre or other soft goat cheese, at room temperature, if possible (makes it easier to mix)Juice of 1/2-1 lemon (depending on taste)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme, minced, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups beet greens, chopped (from about one bunch)
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt (smoked salt would work well here)

Preparation

  1. Heat a grill or grill pan (or toaster oven) over medium high heat until just smoking. Brush sliced baguette with EVOO using about 2 Tbsp total. Grill bread on one side about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and rub, while toast is still warm, with garlic using about 2 whole cloves total. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, spoon chevre and add lemon juice, thyme, and black pepper and mix thoroughly. Set aside.
  3. In another medium bowl, whisk together remaining Tbsp EVOO and garlic clove, minced, balsamic vinegar, and salt. Add beet greens and mix well to coat all the leaves.
  4. To dress each bruschetta toast, place or spread scant 1 Tbsp chevre mixture and top with a small handful of greens. Top with a thyme sprig, if desired.
