Yield32 slices

Prep Time25 minutes

Cook Time15 minutes

Total Time40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 10 oz. baguette
  • olive oil spray
  • vegan parmesan, for topping

Garlic butter spread

  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, softened (1 stick)
  • 1 tbsp. garlic, grated (4 large cloves)
  • 1 packed tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. vegan parmesan

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Use a serrated knife to slice your baguette into pieces about 1/2" wide (12 mm). Slice as close to the bottom of the baguette as you can while still leaving the bottom crust intact to keep the loaf together. You want to ensure you can pull the pieces far enough apart to spread garlic butter in between.
  3. Cut a piece of aluminum foil longer than the baguette and place the baguette on top of the foil.
  4. Add garlic butter ingredients (vegan butter, garlic, parsley, and vegan parmesan) to a bowl and use a fork to mix everything well.
  5. Spread a generous amount of garlic butter between each slice of bread, making sure to coat the bread as evenly as possible.
  6. Spray a thin layer of olive oil on top of the baguette, then sprinkle additional vegan parmesan on top. Wrap the baguette in foil and bake for 15 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Notes & Hints

For a cheesy variation, put slices of vegan mozzarella in between the slices of bread. (Link to recipe in post above).

This bread is crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle; if you want crunchier bread, you can bake it without the foil for 10 minutes.

If you would rather not tear apart your bread with your hands, use a serrated knife to fully slice the bread after it comes out of the oven.
