Zucchini Feta Bruschetta



            Bruschetta is a starter dish served with a topping on a crispy bread drizzled with some herbed oil, commonly olive oil. Zucchini Feta Bruschetta is a variation where we are using fresh chopped zucchini with some chopped tomatoes and Feta cheese. Dried parsley is also added for flavoring. This is a perfect bite sized appetizer that can be served rich with some fresh olive oil drizzled on the top.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is always a good option to have a heavy breakfast than any other meal of the day. Breakfast Bagel sandwich with guacamole and shredded vegetables is a healthy filling sandwich.
