Moringa Stuffed Garlic Bread

Maybe it was being 9 months pregnant, but regardless, garlic and bread both captured my attention when we originally tried this recipe out. The combination of Moringa stuffed garlic bread was inevitable. In this dish, Moringa powder, artichokes, and basil are blended with a simple mix of spices and cheese and then packed into a baguette and warmed in the oven. Drizzled with garlic butter and oozing with cheesy flavor, this comfort food will not last long!

The preparation is simple. Choose a homemade or store bought loaf according to your preference. Use the blade of a long knife to hollow the center of the loaf.  A quick mix of vegetables, spices, and cheese is then used to fill the hollow of your baguette or loaf.

Realign your loaf on cooking pan of preference–we used our cast iron griddle. Slice into individual pieces; be careful to not slice completely through the bottom.  Trickle the garlic butter over the entire loaf allowing it to drip into the slices and over the side.

At the end of baking, top with parmesan and chopped basil or fresh Moringa leaves or a combination of the two. Serve warm to maximize deliciousness!

This Moringa stuffed garlic bread cannot brag of low calories; but there is still plenty of good nutritious benefits literally packed into this loaf!  Don’t pass up this flavorful option to boost your Moringa intake!
