Quick Eats: Cilantro Avocado Sauce over Enchiladas

   Cheese is something we eat very rarely and finding recipes without the use of cheese is always on my list. I used to spend hours watching the food network shows but I don’t do that anymore. I just switch the channel even if I see something drool worthy. I love Ina’s kitchen, all white and posh looking but I have never seen any recipe on her show that I can make. Reason – its either meat(psst – I am vegetarian!) or it involves so much butter and sugar that it makes me go “Oh Dear!”. Rachel Ray has a lot of veggie adaptable recipes but she cooks so fast, I miss most of her ingredients and also, I can not take her chattering.

Quick Eats:Garlic (Pav) Bread

What do you make as an accompaniment to chapatis and curry. I don’t usually make anything. So I decided to cook something up for a change, something quick. I am gonna call this series “Quick Eats” – quick to make and to eat.

Who doesn’t like Garlic bread, right ? I was dying for some but I did not have any French bread but did have some pav. I had made pav bhaji with that but then again how many times can you make pav bhaji ?
So, I made garlic bread with the pav since it’s a soft bread and suits the texture required.
Ingredients:
Pav bread(as many as you want yumm !!)
salt, garlic powder, butter/canola spray, dry basil leaves
paprika(optional)

Directions:
Cut the pav in half. Apply the butter/canola spray on it and then sprinkle the rest of the ingredients on one side of the bread according to taste. Repeat the same on the other side.
Heat a large pan and place the bread on it. Toast it to a light brown on both sides.
Enjoy !!
