Toasted Bread with Olive Oil, Garlic and Herbs

Bread that's grilled over an outdoor fire has a delicious, woodsy flavor and needs only the simplest of toppings.

  • 6 slices of country bread, cut 1 inch thick
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 large ripe tomato, halved
  • 2 tablespoons herbes de Provence

How to make this recipe

  1. Light a grill. Brush both sides of the bread slices with the olive oil. Grill the bread over a moderately hot fire until lightly charred, about 1 minute per side. Rub the hot toasts with the garlic, then the tomato. Sprinkle the toasts with the <em>herbes de Provence</em> and serve at once.
