This recipe for vegan garlic bread is made with fresh roasted garlic and creamy vegan butter. I love using roasted garlic over regular ol’ minced garlic for my garlic bread recipe because it’s so buttery smooth and has a richer, more robust flavor.
I know you’ll love how delicious, buttery, and garlicky this garlic bread recipe is. It’s easy to roast garlic in the oven with a little bit of olive oil.
Once the garlic cloves are soft and browned, remove them from the bulb and smash with a fork until mushy. Add melted butter and a little bit of vegan parmesan for a mixture you’ll have to restrain yourself not to drink!
After that, you can spoon the mixture onto your bread. Pop that into the oven for a quick broil until the bread is crispy and crunchy on top. So good!
Roasted garlic, vegan butter, and vegan parmesan. Easy to make. Delicious.
- 1 loaf Italian bread
- 2 bulbs garlic
- 1/3 cup vegan butter
- 1/4 cup vegan parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400°F
Remove excess papery outer layers of garlic bulb, still leaving a thin layer of skin on the cloves. Using a sharp knife, lay the bulb on its side and cut the tips off each clove, exposing them.
Place the garlic bulb on a small piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle olive oil on top, spreading the oil with your fingers to touch each clove. Wrap the bulb loosely in the aluminum foil.
Place in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the cloves are golden brown and soft.
Remove from the oven and let cool.
Use your fingers or a fork to squeeze each clove out of the skin. Set aside.
Slice the loaf of Italian bread lengthwise.
In a small bowl, melt the vegan butter in your microwave for about 10 seconds. Add the roasted garlic cloves and smash them with a fork until mushy. Add the vegan parmesan and mix until fully incorporated.
Spread the mixture onto the loaf of bread.
Put the bread on a baking sheet and broil in your oven for 3-5 minutes, until the top is browned and crispy. Check often and be careful not to burn the bread. Slice and serve warm.
