Is Garlic Bread Vegan?
A crispy pasta bake and garlic bread is reserved for the evenings that need double-carbing (the superior and edible version of double-screening). This is a restorative and deeply satisfying combination, but is garlic bread vegan?
Well, the answer is yes, yes and (nearly always) yes!
Garlic bread is usually vegan-friendly for a few reasons: firstly the bread generally used is a baguette which is made from a ‘lean dough’ that doesn’t require any fat, like butter. It stems from the traditional Italian dish, bruschetta and developed in the United States amongst Italian-American families.
Secondly, the irresistibly-moreish garlic sauce is traditionally made from oil and garlic – again, plant-based staples. Occasionally butter will be used here instead of oil, so it’s always worth your time to check the label to be sure.
