Garlic Bread

This is way better than the garlic bread you can buy in the store and much healthier since it has no preservatives (other that what's in the bread you buy). It's delicious with soups, stews, pasta and salads.

1 large loaf of crusty whole wheat or multi-grain bread
4-6 cloves of garlic
1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
sea salt

1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice the loaf of bread in half lengthwise and place the two halves face up on a large piece of foil

2) Press the garlic into a small sauce pan (like the kind used to melt butter), add the olive oil and heat over medium-high heat on the stove until it begins to boil. Sizzle the garlic in the oil for about 45 seconds and then remove from the heat.

3) Spoon the garlic & oil over both halves of the bread, sprinkle a little sea salt over each half, close the loaf and wrap it in tinfoil.

4) Bake the loaf in the oven for about 10 minutes until warm and crusty.
