“Yeah, I think garlic bread would have to be my favourite all-time food. I could eat it for every meal. Or just constantly, without stopping.” ~ Scott Pilgrim v. The World
For want of anything better to do at four in the morning I decided to have a go at making my own tomato garlic bread. Because I love tomato garlic bread and yet they don’t sell it in any of the shops near my house. It turned out surprisingly well.
- a packet of mini tortillas
- a carton of passata
- a bulb of garlic
- some fresh, chopped basil
Step 1. Spread some passata over the tortilla leaving a little gap around the edges – I used about a dozen teaspoons full on each but it really depends on how tomatoey you want to your bread to be.
Step 2. Crush a clove of garlic and spread that on to the torilla as well. I originally tried making them with a teaspoon of garlic salt, that worked just fine but the garlic taste was VERY strong, I prefer the ones I made with actual garlic.
Step 3. Spread a teaspoon full of chopped basil over each tortilla. Or more, or less, or none at all – depending on how much you like basil.
Step 4. Bake in an oven pre-heated to 200C for about five minutes.
Step 5. Leave to cool for long enough that they don’t incinerate your tongue and the roof of your mouth before eating.
