Armenian Bruschetta with Pomegranates & Mint

Armenian Bruschetta

I made this last Friday after my grocery shopping trip… It was too late for dinner so instead I wanted to have something that my husband and I can munch on for a late night “dinner.”

How did I arrive to my conclusion of making Armenian Bruschetta?  Well, I wanted to use the Armenian loaf of bread I had purchased from the store… but make something easy, simple but yet very appetizing.  When I opened my fridge, I noticed my lonely pomegranate and decided to make a bruschetta.  I thought since Armenians admire pomegranates so much, I will try to make this bruschetta with some Armenian influence.

Before I share the recipe with all of you, I wanted to thank some my food blogger friends that have crowned me on their blog with a “A Lovely Blog Award.”  I feel very touched and grateful that I can inspire them like they inspire me.  They all have a place in my blogging heart.  Please visit their sites and find out more about them and their aspiring posts.

    I made a bit of standard bruschetta today, but your Armenian version sounds even better. Much better, actually. And I had all the ingredients – the pomegranate, the green chili. If only I’d see this earlier 🙂

  • Turkey’s for Life

    This looks really good. There was one fabulous Armenian restaurant in Manchester (UK) that we used to visit a lot and the title of your dish just reminded me of it. We’re in midst of pomegranate season here now so our fridge has a constant supply of huge, fat red ones. Mmmm.

  • http://themomchef.blogspot.com The Mom Chef

    This does sound very Armenian and yes, I love pomegranates!

    Thank you so much for passing the award on to me. I truly appreciate it and am honored since I view you as a lovely blogger and me more kind of goofy. 🙂

  • Becky

    Thank you for mentioning me on your blog. You certainly have a Lovely blog. I’m always looking for new bruschetta recipes, and this one is different with the pomegranate and mint. I must rescue my mint plant on the patio, before it freezes.

  • Silvia

    Oh first thanks so much for the award! What a lovely list of blogs you have there, and it’s always a great honor to be a part of them! I love the liveliness and spirit you can feel through your posts, a lot of passion and dedication. This bruschetta has one of my favorite fruits, pomegranate, and certainly has a Middle Eastern twist to it. Great combo with the addition of mint!

  • http://www.adventuresomekitchen.wordpress.com Jennifer-Adventuresome Kitchen

    I LOVE the combination of pomegranate, tomato, green chile, and mint! That is just fabulous! I’m going to have to try this the next time I pick up a pomegranate! Thanks!

  • http://www.oilandbutter.com Lefty

    Oh wow. The initial picture just made me hungry before I looked at how you prepare it … tomato and pomegranate? Awesome. How spicy would you say this is? Could you leave the seeds in the chili to make it a little hotter, or would that mess up the taste too much?

  • http://www.mytastyhandbook.com Adelina Badalyan

    Since I used the long green chilis, they heat was less. I think if you love more heat, just keep the seeds in… It will definitely taste good.

  • http://www.mytastyhandbook.com Adelina Badalyan

    Thanks everyone for your great feedback. You’re all so sweet! I hope you enjoy making it at home. Happy to be part of your community!

    You are so deserving of any award you get, and the fact that you payed it forward and i am one of the lucky recipients is that much sweeter. thank you. of course it all pales in comparison to the amazingness of that bruschetta- might have to sort that out for dinner… xoxo

    I love pomegranates and mint and I hadn’t thought of putting the two together on a bruschetta, very creative!
