Lightly toasted French bread is slathered in dairy free garlic butter to make Vegan Garlic Bread. Not only does the butter go on top of the bread, but it goes on each individual slice as well! Fresh parsley, Italian seasoning and two kinds of garlic flavor this versatile side dish.


  • 1 loaf French bread (24 inches long)
  • 1 cup vegan butter
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Before getting started, check to make sure your loaf of French bread will fit in your oven.  French bread can be up to 2 feet long!  If your bread will not fit across your oven horizontally, try laying it diagonally in your oven.  If it still won't fit, simply cut it in half and make two equally sized loaves of bread. 
  2. Preheat your oven to 350° F.
  3. Soften the vegan butter in the microwave for 10 seconds.  Mix the softened butter, garlic powder, minced garlic, parsley, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper together.  
  4. Using a sharp bread knife, cut slits in your loaf of bread.  Space the slits 1 inch apart and only cut about 90% of the way through each slice of bread.  You want the bread to remain in tact on the bottom.  
  5. Spread 1/2 teaspoon of the garlic butter in between each cut slice of French bread.  Smear the remaining butter on top of the loaf of bread.
  6. Wrap the loaf of vegan garlic bread in foil.  Tent the foil at the top so that there is space between the top of the loaf of bread and the foil.  Try to prevent the foil from touching the top of the bread. 
  7. Place the foil wrapped bread in the oven and cook it for 10 minutes. 
  8. Remove the bread from the oven, open the foil at the top and place the bread back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes. 
  9. Remove the bread from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.  Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.  Enjoy! 


  • You can prepare your vegan garlic bread ahead of time and cook it right before you're ready to serve it.  
  • This recipe is made using a 24 inch French baguette.  If your baguette is not 24 inches long, you can use 2-3 smaller baguettes.
