Ingredients

¼ pound roasted tomatoes
3 garlic bulbs
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Pinch of cayenne
1 tablespoon chopped fresh leaf parsley plus sprigs for
garnish
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano plus sprigs for garnish
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Twelve ½-inch-thick slices coarse-textured bread

Directions
  1. Place the garlic bulbs in a small baking dish. Drizzle with the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of water and cover with the foil. Bake until the garlic is soft, about 40 minutes.
  2. Pass the garlic through a potato ricer or food mill, and discard the skins. Reserve the garlic pulp and garlic oil.
  3. Chop the tomatoes and put into a small bowl. Add the reserved garlic and garlic oil, the lemon juice, cayenne, parsley, and oregano, and mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Under the broiler, toast the bread until lightly golden. Spread with the tomato-garlic puree and place on a platter. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley and oregano sprigs.
