Oven-Baked Garlic Toast


Roasting garlic transforms it into a rich- tasting, low-fat spread.

  • 6Servings


  • 1 large head of garlic
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 whole-grain sourdough batarde, cut on diagonal into 1/2-inch-thick slices


Preheat oven to 375F.

Peel off any loose papery skins from garlic head. Cut off about 1?4 inch from top of head using a sharp knife. Remove just enough of head to expose cloves. Drizzle top with oil, and wrap in foil. Place on a pie plate in oven. Bake for 35 minutes.

Spray each side of bread slices lightly with cooking spray, and bake for about 4 minutes on each side, or until bread is golden and crisp.

Unwrap garlic, squeeze out softened garlic from each clove and spread it on toasts. Place slices on a plate, and serve.
