Nothing goes better with soup that a piece of garlic toast. This is the version we’ve been making this past couple of months. We discovered Chili Beak Chili Oil and I have been a little obsessed – putting it in everything.

It is well worth making extra – an entire loaf really. It makes an incredible sandwich the next day.
