This homemade Vegan Garlic bread is packed with garlic flavor and is so quick and easy to make.
For the final day of this week’s ‘adapted cuisine in different country’ theme, I have a vegan garlic bread recipe. I always thought garlic bread which is served with Italian dishes is an Italian tradition. Apparently it is an American creation which has now become synonymous to Italian food here in the US.
Italian Toasted Bread:
Italians make Bruschetta — which is basically toasted bread rubbed with garlic clove and topped with fresh tomatoes. But they don’t overdo the garlic or the butter, in fact bruschetta is made with olive oil and not butter. Also they serve it as an appetizer and not as a side dish to pizza.
American Garlic Bread:
Well Italian or not, this garlic bread is a delicious dish by itself. This vegan version is quite easy to make. Use vegan butter instead of regular butter along with some good quality extra virgin olive oil to make a tasty garlic bread.
Toasting/ baking the bread infuses it with flavor and makes it crispy and extra yummy. I served it with a side of vegan Caesar salad and it was a simple and filling meal. Great to make during the holidays too.
