Start with one loaf of Homemade Whole Wheat French Bread. Mix the Vegan Parsley Butter. Butter the bread. Then toast. Yummy mouthwatering garlic bread!
I haven’t eaten Garlic Bread in over seven years since turning raw vegan. Now that I am cooking again, I am savouring all the wonderful tastes that cooked food has to offer. This vegan garlic bread is delicious. It does not sacrifice taste for a healthier choice. In fact, it is both delicious and healthier than many options out there. This is enjoyed by all in my family.
I’m really enjoying cooking again… I’m sure my family is too.
1 Loaf of Whole Wheat French Bread
Place all in a bread machine in order and set to dough:
- 3/4 c water

- 2 c mix of bread flour with whole grain flour, start with 2/3 c whole wheat or spelt flour and the rest bread flour

When dough stage is completed, take dough and roll into a long loaf. Place on a baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal. With a serrated knife, cut the loaf diagonally. Cover and let rise for 1 hour. Lightly brush or spray with water before baking in a preheated oven at 400F for 20 minutes.

Easy Garlic Whole Wheat Bread
For moister garlic bread slices: Cut the French Bread Loaf into slices almost all the way through so that the loaf is still intact. Fill slices well with Vegan Parsley Butter. Wrap loaf in foil and bake in preheated oven at 425F for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake 5 more minutes until crisp.
For toastier garlic bread slices: Slice French Bread into separate slices. Butter the slices, place on a cookie sheet and bake 5 minutes in a preheated oven at 425F till crisp.
Serve immediately. Enjoy. I love these with homemade kale and bean soup!
