Classic BruschettaCuisinart Original Recipe
3 to 4 garlic cloves
2 cups fresh basil
6 cups tomatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 baguette, cut into 1/2-inch slices

Insert the large metal chopping blade into the large workbowl of the Cuisinart® Food Processor and process the whole garlic cloves until finely chopped. Add the basil to the work bowl and pulse 5 to 6 times to roughly chop. Add the tomatoes and pulse to roughly chop. Strain mixture; put into a large mixing bowl and toss with the salt, pepper, oil and lemon juice. Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Rub the bread slices with the smashed garlic and place on a baking sheet. Bake in oven to toast, about 5 minutes.
Spoon 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of topping on each toasted slice and serve immediately
