Perfect for a cold winter's night! We especially love this easy, elegant dinner with our sesame sourdough bread. Cut the bread into thick slices, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt, then toast or grill it.
While the bread toasts, cut a clove of garlic in half. When the bread is done, lightly rub each piece with the cut side of the garlic. You'll get that beautiful, soft garlic flavor without the harshness of biting into a piece of garlic.
