Ways with Stale Bread - 1

I took half a 3-day-old baguette and sliced it lengthways. I brushed the slices with a couple of glugs of oil spiked with crushed garlic. I laid the slices of bread on a baking tray and grilled them until golden brown. They went perfectly with a bowl of vegetable soup, eaten in my sunny back garden.

The oil came from a jar of sundried tomatoes. I buy jars of sundried tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers and artichokes from Aldi. When I've finished all the vegetables I use the oil in dressings etc. It's full of flavour. Too good to throw away.
