Serves: 7 slices
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • ¼ cup basil, minced (5-8 basil leaves)
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ cup gouda cheese
  • half of a french bread
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Cut french bread diagonally into half inch slices, and toast in the oven for about 4-6 minutes until slightly crispy. Flip, sprinkle over gouda cheese, and toast again until cheese is bubbly and melted.
  3. While the bread is toasting, in a small saucepan over medium heat, add coconut oil and garlic. Saute garlic until 1-2 minutes, until a light brown color. Combine browned garlic (including remaining coconut oil), tomatoes, basil, and salt and pepper. Give a gentle stir, and set to the side.
  4. Top with tomato-basil mixture, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
