If you think bruschetta isn’t perfect for a bbq, let me tell you why it is. It’s quick, easy and you can grab a piece and continue chatting with your friends.
I served this a few weeks ago at a barbecue and it was the first thing finished and everyone raved about it! Not only that, but it fit in perfectly with the more traditional bbq dishes, and since I brought this, I knew I would have at least one vegan thing there to eat.
