  • 1 loaf of bread I used ciabatta
  • 1 stick of vegan butter ½ cup/ 112 grams/ 4 oz
  • 1 bulb of garlic
  • 1-2 teaspoon of chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt


  • Make sure the butter is at room temperature. Take it out of the fridge a few hours before starting.
  • Cut off the top of the bulb of garlic and generously drizzle it with olive oil.
  • Wrap the garlic in foil and roast it at 450*F for 35-40 minutes.
  • Allow the garlic to cool off for a few minutes because it will be very hot coming out of the oven.
  • Once the garlic has cooled, squeeze out the insides of the garlic into a bowl. Also add the vegan butter, parsley, nutritional yeast, and salt. Mix them well.
  • Slice the bread the long way (hot dog style). Divide up the garlic butter on to the bread and spread it on in a thick layer.
  • Place the bread on a baking sheet and bake the bread for 15 minutes at 450*F.
  • Slice up the bread, dip in some tomato soup and enjoy!
