Olive Oil and Garlic Bruschetta
|4 large garlic cloves|
|1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil|
|a good pinch hot red pepper flakes|
|1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley, optional|
|4 thick slices country bread, preferably sourdough|
This is pared down simplicity and so easy to make. It beats the likes of dough balls and garlic bread hands down. The most important thing is not to overcook the garlic. it must on no account turn brown. This is great served instead of garlic bread, with a selection of salads.
