  1. 2 large plum tomatoes, peeled, seeded and cut into ¼-inch thick wedges
  2. 1 large white onion, skinned and cut into ¼-inch thick wedges
  3. ½ cup fresh basil, chopped
  4. 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  5. 1 teaspoon light brown sugar, packed
  6. pinch of salt and pepper or to taste
  7. ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil, divided
  8. 1 loaf (about 12 ounces) French baguette, cut into ½-inch thick sliced
  9. 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  10. ¼ cup fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
  1. Combine together tomatoes, onion, basil, vinegar, light brown sugar, salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Toss lightly until well-blended. Set aside for 30 to 60 minutes to marinate.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  3. Arrange bread slices on a baking sheet lightly brushed with olive oil. Brush remaining olive oil on bread slices. Bake for 3 minutes or until crispy and lightly browned. Remove from oven and transfer toasts onto wire racks to prevent further cooking.
  4. Spread cream cheese over toasts. Spoon marinated vegetables over cream cheese layer and sprinkle with chopped cilantro. Drizzle marinade over bruschetta and arrange on a platter. Serve immediately.
