Easy Herbed Garlic Bread


Any medical people out there? I had the worst exam of my life today. It was so bad. On so many different levels. The ARRT is going to come and revoke my licenses. They are going to rip them right off the wall and smash them to pieces on the ground in front of me. Then…they are going to decapitate me. Yes. It’s true.So, if you don’t hear from me in the coming weeks, it’s because I was decapitated. And I deserved it. Though I plead technology difficulties! After work, I bought some Coconut Bliss ice cream (treat yo’ self!) and sniffled on the couch while contemplating my utter incompetence. I can be a bit of a perfectionist, at times. 

Moving on from my gruesome and inevitable death, when we were down in Ohio, one of Todd’s sisters had made us some garlic bread. Todd was instantly addicted. We got the recipe, brought it back home and it stayed safe and sound in my sock drawer. I understand that makes no sense. But, that’s what happened.

Anyways, in the move it got lost and so Todd took it upon himself to find a recipe and make us some garlic bread. He’s always in charge of the garlic bread making. So this time he did the cooking!

Crispy, soft and warm herbed garlic bread. This is about as easy and quick as it gets. 

Easy Herbed Garlic Bread

Inspired by Todd’s sister

Makes 1 loaf

  • 6 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. dried parsley
  • 1 Tbsp. dried oregano 
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • sprinkle of ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 large loaf of fresh Italian bread
  • slathering of vegan butter

Preheat oven to 350 F. 

Add all ingredients except the bread and butter into a small saucepan. Saute over low heat for about 3-5 minutes or until the garlic has cooked. 

Slice the bread in half horizontally and butter one half. Spread the garlic and herb mixture on the other half.

Put the bread pieces back together and wrap with foil. Bake on the middle rack at 350 F for 5 minutes. Then, open the foil and continue to bake for another 5 minutes. 

Remove from the foil and serve in warm slices. 

We ate this with some scrumptious pasta last night!
