Spring Bruschetta with Garlic Kelp Butter

Bruschetta is an antipasto from Italy consisting of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and typically garnished with tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper. This version uses a garlic kelp spread instead of the traditional olive oil. This has the advantage of reducing salt/sodium and providing other essential minerals and natural iodine.

My Natural Health Practitioner had recommended a daily diet high in sprouts (especially sunflower and buckwheat) and other superfoods, made into smoothies.
