Who doesn't love crunchy, buttery garlic bread? But it's a fat trap that can add extra kilojoules very easily before we even get on to the main course.
To give garlic bread a makeover:
- Mix minced garlic, finely chopped parsley and a small amount of olive oil together – if you have a blender or a mortar and pestle, use this to get a pesto-style consistency.
- Spread this thinly onto your bread slices and lay the slices on a tray.
- Toast in the oven until heated through.
- Try using sourdough bread for a nice flavour change or grainy bread for a boost of fibre.
