These slices of crusty bread are rubbed with olive oil and lightly toasted, then rubbed with garlic and seasoned with sea salt.  Grilling the bread on a barbecue or grill plate will add a delicious smoky flavour that's hard to beat.  Toppings are optional - my favourite is thick slices of juicy, sun-ripened tomato and some fresh basil, but you might like to try semi-dried tomatoes with shaved Parmesan or moist buffalo mozzarella with fresh herbs.


Brush each slice of bread on both sides with olive oil and cook on a barbecue, grill plate or in a pan for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden brown - you might even like them to be a little charred.  Rub each with a peeled and cut clove of garlic.  Season with salt and serve with topping sof your choice or as a side to a hearty stew or soup.
