TUESDAY TOAST: Bruschetta, Goat Cheese, & Almond Toast - FOOD PHOTO SHOOT

in #photography4 years ago

Happy toasty Tuesday again, guys!


Clearly I'm in a basil obsessed mood recently but I think that's because I picked up the cutest little basil plant at the store a a few weeks ago and I've somehow managed not to kill it yet. That, and it's currently sitting on my counter-top reminding me daily how delicious it would be in whatever I'm making.
So I got a great response when I asked you if I should make “Tuesday Toast” sort of an official thing, so here I am with another quick and easy recipe (if you can even call it that), to hopefully fuel you in your own toast greatness. Today’s star flavors are bruschetta, goat cheese, and slivered almonds.


It’s been about 6 months now, since we moved into this house we’re in now, and I can’t even begin to deny that being in the heart of town near everything has been super nice. In fact, I don’t know if I’ve ever lived this close to so many awesome grocery stores. (Thank you Trader Joe’s for only being about 20 minutes away!) One of my favorites that I frequent has this awesome health food section that is sort of like a mini version of Whole Foods within the store and I always find myself trying not to buy everything on every aisle of this section to use in a new recipe. However, I do usually end up grabbing an item or two that I haven’t seen before just to get inspired for the next recipes on my horizon.


I will definitely admit that it’s a trade-off to live in town because you don’t have moose randomly walking across your yard and there are a lot of people and houses so you don’t see many animals. I’ve caught myself missing the freedom of endless woods and daily wildlife sightings from when we’ve lived much further outside the city. I’m just enjoying this season of my life at the moment though, because it’ll probably change again very soon.


Anyway, I know I could have shared a recipe for the bruschetta, I mean it’s obviously amazing when made from scratch, but I kept this one extremely simple instead and used some from TJ’s. I know, totally cheating aren’t I? Hey, but if you want me to share my own recipe for bruschetta let me know because I’d love to do that also, it’s just that toast Tuesday is all about simple and easy so we’re keeping this to under 5 minutes to prep.

Lovely pictures! I'm not really good with cooking but I sure know a tasty meal when I see one. I'll try making this using this procedure and making sure that it looks exactly like it is in your pictures. Thanks @grigalicious

I'd pick off the almonds...because i'm allergic to those. But the rest looks really delicious. Also it's not cheating if it's delicious.

bummer, allergic to almonds. So glad you like the looks of it. No almonds, no problem

Your post made me hungry! Toast!

It's already Wednesday here in the Philippines. Happy Tuesday to you, @gringalicious!

I could definitely eat a piece of that wonderful toast right now. The goat cheese is a nice note and sounds good. Being close to stores sounds like it is working out for you.....well, more for us as we get to see all your great creations!

Those basil plants are a better deal than buying a package of fresh-cut basil. They will keep putting on leaves, especially if you cut one branch at a time, down low. The plant will start putting on new growth from that cut branch. And they sure smell nice, too! Enjoy your Trader Joe's! The ones I've been to are always crowded - always! And happy Toast Tuesday!

Yes, Trader's can be crowded for sure. I always try to avoid the after work rush and never on Saturdays.

Great idea on the basil, thanks so much @haphazard-hstead

You're welcome. If you do try to keep your basil going, they don't want too much water. And they will like as much sun and warmth as they can get. They are summer plants, after all. Here's to more basil in your future! : )

Dammnn you know that you're photography is on point where you make something as basic as toast look this delicious!

I could eat homemade bruschetta until the cows come home!

Did the cows leave home? LOL. Sorry, trying to be funny. Thanks so much for the continued support @cecicastor

Yup! They leave for the pastures in the morning and return in the evening...

Today, the lion's share of thefood energyrequired by the everincreasingpopulation of the worldis provided by thefood industry.Food safetyandfood securityare observed by offices like theInternational Association for Food Protection,World Resources Institute,World Food Programme,Food and Agriculture Organization, andInternational Food Information Council.

Some nourishment is gotten straightforwardly from plants; yet even creatures that are utilized as sustenance sources are raised by bolstering them nourishment determined fromplants.Cerealgrain is astaple foodthat gives more nourishment vitality worldwide than some other kind of crop.[2]Corn (maize),wheat, andrice– in the majority of their assortments – accountfor 87% of all grain generation worldwide.[3][4][5]Most of the grain that is delivered worldwide is encouraged to livestock.Some sustenances not from creature or plant sources incorporate different ediblefungi, especiallymushrooms.

Honestly, I am very happy to read your article, you create an exciting content that can make me relax reading it, can you visit my blog ?? @umar97

seems to be delicious. I really want to taste it, in my area live eata like this rarely found, almonds are hard to come by. I will wait for the next post.

Oh, well I'm sure you could replace the ingredients with something similar. Thanks @syareefa10

Great food photography its very inspiring! I especially like the super shallow depth of field which at times can be very difficult to pull off when shooting food. Was this light via all natural window light or were you using strobes bounce cards etc. Im very interested in your process if you don't mind lending some inside to that.

so glad you see the food photography. I only use natural light. Soon, I hope to do a process post / tutorial. Stay tuned

Yum looks delicious

thanks so much for commenting @cassteem

There is actual drool...okay maybe that's exaggerating (because chics don't do that) but salivation most definitely. Yum. I mean I'm actually assessing what's in my cupboards to see if I can make this right now. I do have feta!
