Rosemary Garlic Bread

GarlicbreadThere’s nothing quite like warm, crisp bread that’s fresh out the oven –except if it’s topped with garlic and drizzled olive oil. Add rosemary into the mix and you will have a new favourite for any meal of the day.

This rosemary garlic bread takes only minutes to make, and tastes terrific paired with a cucmber-tomato salad (hello healthy 5-minute lunch!) or as a companion to pasta. And because it’s made without butter, you can feel good about helping yourself to a second serving!

Ingredients: Makes 8 pieces

1/2 whole grain baguette

3 garlic cloves

2 tsp dried rosemary

4 tbsp olive oil

Process:

Preheat your oven at 350 Fahrenheit, then

1. Cut your baguette in 2 rectangular pieces, then in half horizontally (you should have 4 pieces total)

2. Drizzle 1 tbsp of olive oil onto each quarter, and spread it with a spoon

3. Peel the 3 cloves of garlic, chop them finely and crush them with a butter knife.  Divide this evenly onto each section of the bread, sprinkling the rosemary on top

4. Cut each of the quarters diagonally, to make triangular pieces. Place them in an aluminum foil covered baking sheet and pop them into the oven for approximately 5-6 minutes.
