Melt butter in microwave and add the minced garlic.
Using a basting brush coat both sides of the bread with the butter/garlic mixture and then lightly salt both sides.
Broil in oven, toaster oven or grill it. Watch closely and flip when browned.
Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil.
Turn down the heat, cover and let it simmer, stirring only once, for 20-25 minutes.
Once the liquid is absorbed, leave it alone with the lid on it for 5 minutes.
