Peppers can be quickly charred over a flame or under a broiler and then peeled. Oven-roast them for soft, well-cooked peppers. The peppers practically peel themselves if after roasting, you place them in a bowl covered with plastic wrap until they are cool enough to handle.
4 red bell peppers, roasted, peeled, seeded and sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 - 1/2 inch baguette slices, toasted
1 garlic clove, peeled and cut in half
2 ounces fresh goat cheese, sliced or crumbled
2 teaspoons olive oil
1. Preheat the broiler.
2. In a medium bowl, combine peppers, basil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Rub both sides of the bread slices with the cut sides of the garlic. Place bread on a baking sheet and top with the peppers and goat cheese. Drizzle with the oil.
4. Broil the bruschetta until cheese melts and starts to brown slightly.
