To me, garlic bread goes with just about everything. If it’s a saucy dish, then it’s practically necessary! We often whip up this quick and easy garlic bread recipe to go with dinner on a whim. Hubs likes when we have crusty bread because it makes the best garlic bread.
This time I picked up a sub roll (or hero, or hoagie, depending on who you ask) for 50cents at the grocery store on my way home because I knew we were having a particularly garlic-bread-friendly meal (polenta with eggplant, white beans, tomato). It was perfect for sopping up all that delicious goodness left behind in our bowls.
1 sub roll, sliced in half both ways
4 Tbsp vegan butter, room temperature
1 Tbsp garlic powder, divided
1 tsp paprika, divided
fresh chopped parsley, optional
olive oil, optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place bread on baking sheet and coat the cut sides with a thin layer of butter. Sprinkle buttered sides evenly with garlic powder and paprika. Place in the oven for 5 minutes, then transfer to the broiler for another 5 minutes. Watch carefully because they can burn very quickly. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley, if desired.
