A slice of garlic bread would never steer you wrong. It’s just the thing to accompany a bowl of soup, pasta, a salad – or pretty much anything at all. This vegan garlic bread is a classic, made using olive oil not butter, so it’s suitable for dairy-free diners. Feel free to add your plant-based cheese of choice to the top if you want something melty, though it also works well without.
