Healthier Garlic Bread Alternative

I think everybody has a favourite cuisine, and, as much as admittedly I do like a bit of fish and chips, Italian is the one for me. It's a tad hard going dairy free here, but it is doable both in your own home and eating out.Anyway, I'm a great lover of garlic bread in all forms - baguettes, pizza dough, naans: you name it, I've probably tried it (and loved it). But, this little recipe is a great simple thing to do when you don't want to buy a calorie- and grease-laden lot of garlic bread. It takes less than 5 minutes from start to finish, so is handy for a little pick-me-up or as an accompaniment to a meal.


Butter (or dairy free alternative)
1 garlic clove
Granary bread
Dried Basil
Dried Parsley
Dried Rosemary
Sea Salt

1.) Finely chop or crush the garlic. 

2.) Put the garlic in a small tub. Add about 50g butter.

3.) Sprinkle a large pinch of parsley, and a small one of basil and rosemary on top. Add a little bit of salt. 

4.) Toast some bread and top with the mixture. You now have your own ready-made nasties-free garlic bread!

If you want something a bit more heavy duty, why not top with some grated mozzarella?
