• Preheat the oven to 400°F.
• In a food processor, combine the margarine, garlic, herbs, and salt until thoroughly “greenified.”
• Spread liberally on the bread slices. Bake until just golden brown (being careful not to overbrown) and serve immediately.
• The spread will store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for several months.
