Calling all carb lovers!
Fire up those ovens because today we talk about this incredible dairy free garlic bread.
Or otherwise known as the perfect easy side.
Serve it with pasta, a big ol’ salad, a steaming bowl of soup. Any which way, you cannot go wrong.
And today’s version?
It’s packed to the brim with garlicky flavor, has perfectly crisp edges and a soft buttery center … all without any actual butter involved.
Thanks to plenty of olive oil and just a hint of nutritional yeast for some cheesy goodness.
It’s toasty, carb-y perfection.
How To Make Dairy Free Garlic Bread
So, let’s chat about how this simple side goes down:
Mix up topping. First, we’ll whisk together plenty of olive oil, garlic, fresh parsley and spices until well combined.
Spread over bread. Next, we’ll brush the mixture over a halved baguette or loaf of french bread until evenly coated.
Bake until golden. Finally, we’ll pop in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes until perfectly crisp and toasty.
And then we dig right on in.
Tips & Tricks
- Let’s talk about the bread. I’ve tried this with both french bread and a baguette. Either works, so grab whatever looks best. Our local store also sometimes carries smaller sized french loaves (that are shaped like short baguettes). That’s my first choice if I can find them.
- Along those lines, I personally think the final product tastes best if you start with a fresh loaf of bread – i.e. not something that’s been sitting around forever.
- Feel free to adjust the amount of garlic / spices to your taste.
- Now, about the garlic. Try to use fresh garlic cloves and not the jarred stuff. It really does make a difference in flavor.
- And finally, be sure to keep an eye on the bread once it nears the 10 minute mark – it can go from perfectly toasty to slightly burned quickly!
How To Store
Garlic bread is definitely best enjoyed freshly baked.
With that said, if you have any leftovers, wrap tightly in foil or place in an airtight container and keep on the counter for 1 to 2 days.
Rewarm briefly in the oven before serving.
