I feel like I can mimic any of my favorite foods and create a vegan, gluten-free option. These days, it is easy to find gluten-free options in the supermarket. There are not as many gluten-free AND vegan options. Thankfully, Food for Life has a few options for breads that are gluten-free AND vegan. The breads are pretty dense, but when used for this garlic bread recipe, they are perfect.
For this particular garlic bread I used their Rice Millet bread. It is nice and heavy and tastes great. I don’t know that I would use this bread to make a sandwich, but I love it when I transform it to garlic bread or use it to make stuffing.
I eat this garlic bread like it is going out of style. It is delicious with pasta, a bowl of soup, a salad, or just plain on its own. Plus, it is so packed with good-for-you ingredients, but – shhh! – you would never know if I didn’t tell you!
To prepare for this recipe, roast a full pod of garlic in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes until the cloves are soft and mushy. Keep oven heated to put in the garlic bread when you have it prepared.
Ingredients (per one slice of bread):
- One slice of Food for Life Rice Millet Bread (or your gluten-free, vegan choice) per serving
- ½ to 1 full clove of roasted garlic (I opt for more garlic on everything – but that is me!)
- A smear of Earth Balance soy free vegan butter spread per slice of bread (the amount is up to you)
- Sea salt to taste
- Black pepper to taste
- MacNut Parmesan to taste (search recipe using search box on this site)
- Dried Parsley to taste
Smear the Earth Balance onto each slice of bread
Remove a roasted garlic clove from its shell and spread ½ to 1 full clove on each slice of bread you are using
Sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper, dried parsley and MacNut parmesan to taste
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or to desired crispiness
