Bruschetta With Vegan Pesto

Vegan Pesto Cherry Tomato Bruschetta via danceofstoves.com #vegan
This bruschetta with vegan pesto is our starter proposal for Valentine's Day because there is nothing more romantic than Italian food (or at least it seems to me).

We already had a pesto recipe (which you can see here), but we wanted to improve it, make a vegan version without dairy, and the result has been incredible; you will love it!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and that is why we bring you rich, easy and healthy recipes to prepare a romantic dinner and surprise your partner.

We do not usually celebrate it traditionally because we do not give ourselves any gifts. 

Still, we like to do something special, for example, last year we did a beautiful excursion, did exercise and many photos, we were also fortunate with the weather because it seemed almost summer. It was one of the most memorable days of the year.

This typically Italian starter is one of our favourites, we have always taken the version that has dairy, but this pesto has nothing to envy the original, its flavour is very similar, and it is a lighter version because even if it has pine nuts and oil, we save ourselves the cheese. 

With the quantities of the recipe, four slices come out; for us, two are enough for each one, but if you like to eat more or are addicted to pesto and you like to add more, you can make double (or triple!).

Bruschetta Bread | danceofstoves.com
For our bruschettas, we have used spelt bread because it is one of our favourites and because we try to eat whole foods; it also has a very intense flavour and makes a perfect contrast with the pesto without stealing too much prominence.

We saw this coloured cherry in the supermarket, and we could not resist, some are pear, others regular, tomato, yellow, orange and red. 

We like that our diet is full of colour, because, in addition to brightening our eyes, we are taking very varied and beneficial nutrients for our health. If you don't like cherry, you can use any other variety of tomatoes.

It is a quick and simple recipe, you hardly have to cook, and it looks pretty elaborate. The best of all is its flavour, the pesto is fantastic, and the tomato adds a fresh touch to the bruschetta

The bread is lightly toasted, but if you don't want to complicate your life, it is also delicious as is.

We want to have a 100% vegetable dinner this Valentine's Day, so our three proposals (starter, main and dessert) will be vegan, relatively light (as far as possible) and without the need to spend hours in the kitchen.

Bruschetta is an appetiser or antipasto from Italy. This is the best vegan bruschetta I’ve ever tried!

  • Preparation: 10 minutes
  • Cook: 5 minutes
  • Total: 15 minutes
  • Servings: 4 units (1x), 8 units (2x), 12 units (3x)

Ingredients SCALE (1x)

  • 25 grams of fresh basil
  • 25 grams of pine nuts
  • One clove garlic
  • 50 grams of extra virgin olive oil
  • Two tablespoons of brewer's yeast
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Four slices of bread
  • 12 cherry tomatoes

Ingredients SCALE (2x)

  • 50 grams of fresh basil
  • 50 grams of pine nuts
  • Two cloves of garlic
  • 100 grams of extra virgin olive oil
  • Four tablespoons of brewer's yeast
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Eight slices of bread
  • 24 cherry tomatoes

Ingredients SCALE (3x)

  • 75 grams of fresh basil
  • 75 grams of pine nuts
  • Three cloves of garlic
  • 150 grams of extra virgin olive oil
  • Six tablespoons of brewer's yeast
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 12 slices of bread
  • 36 cherry tomatoes


  1. In a food processor, food processor or blender, we put the basil, pine nuts and garlic (you can remove the germ so that it is not so strong) and crush them.
  2. Add the oil, brewer's yeast, salt, and pepper and blend until the desired consistency is obtained. If you like the pesto to be less liquid and more consistent, you can add more pine nuts or less oil.
  3. Toast the bread slices in a toaster, pan, grill or the oven until hot and lightly browned on both sides but not dry.
  4. Spread the pesto on the slices, place the cherry cut in half and add a little salt and black pepper.
