Garlic Bruschetta Recipe

This garlic bruschetta recipe will delight garlic bread fans. The added benefit from using garlic kelp is additional nutrient and wonderful umami flavour. Use this butter in steamed vegetables or as a garnish on fish & seafood.  Kelp seasonings are a positive alternative to salt because they taste salty, yet have less sodium and more of the other minerals & trace elements we need.
