Glenn Lindgren: OK, maybe garlic bread isn't the best way to start a romantic evening.
Jorge Castillo: However, as long as you both partake in this delicious treat, you have nothing to worry about!
Raúl Musibay: It has been said that garlic is a member of the rose family, so giving your sweetheart a head of garlic is just like giving her (or him) a dozen roses.
Glenn Lindgren: The only problem with that idea is that garlic is actually part of the lily family!
Jorge Castillo: So give her the lilies or the roses and save the garlic for this simple but delicious recipe.
Fried bread rounds that can be eaten alone or topped with meats and sauces.
INGREDIENTS:1/4 cup olive oil for sautéing
Slice Cuban or French bread in one-inch slices. Place the rounds on a cutting board and use a heavy frying pan or bacon press to compress them slightly.
Heat the oil in a large sauté pan. Toss in the crushed garlic and cilantro (or parsley) and sauté for one minute only, stirring constantly. Add the bread and sauté over medium heat until the bread is browned on both sides.
Just before removing the toast from the pan, sprinkle the slices with a little fresh lemon juice. We're talking about a tiny sprinkle, not a shower!
