Recipe Notes

If you are interested in the bread in the picture, this recipe for garlic bread uses plenty of healthy fats and real, crushed garlic cloves. It is one of my family's favorite side dishes.

The video below demonstrates the written recipe for you visual learners 🙂

Note that I use precooked beans in the dish, but you can just as easily use leftover veggies instead if that is what you have on hand. The point is to get creative and that a healthy dinner does not have to be complicated or time consuming to prepare.
