Vegan Garlic Bread

Vegan garlic bread prepared on cutting board with two slices out.

Tasty vegan garlic bread with roasted garlic, fresh basil, and olive oil. Perfect for pairing with pasta or soups.



  1. To roast garlic, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Remove two raw garlic cloves from one bulb and set aside. Cut the bottom off of garlic bulb, so each clove is exposed. Wrap each bulb loosely in foil and drizzle with olive oil. Roast until garlic cloves become fragrant and begin to brown, about 20-30 minutes. Once browned, remove garlic from oven and let cool. When bulbs are cool enough to handle, you can squeeze each clove and the roasted garlic will pop out.
  2. Add roasted garlic, raw garlic cloves, olive oil, basil, salt, oregano, and red pepper flakes to small food processor. Blend on high until smooth. Add additional salt, basil, red pepper flakes, or oregano as desired.
  3. Slice loaf as desired. You can either do individual horizontal pieces or cut down the length of the loaf and split it in half. Slather one side of each slice of bread with the garlic oil.
  4. Place the bread on a cooking sheet and bake garlic side up for about 10 minutes, or until crispy. If you want extra crispy garlic bread, you can broil for 1-2 minutes before taking out of oven. Be sure to keep an eye on the bread if you broil so you don’t burn it.
