It’s a pretty well known fact that everyone loves garlic bread! There is something about the warm and savory flavor of the bread, garlic, spices and oil that makes the bread almost melt in your mouth. I recently found a recipe for a gluten-free garlic bread in the latest edition of Delight Gluten Free magazine, which seemed easy to make. In reading the ingredients I noticed the oil of choice that was used was olive oil. Now olive oil isn’t a bad oil, however it is best when used in cold dishes so I planned to sub the olive oil with coconut oil.
4 slices of gluten-free bread
2 tablespoons Kelapo coconut oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/8 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/8 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray with Kelapo cooking spray.
- Place the gluten-free bread slices on the prepared baking sheet.
- In a small bowl, whisk together coconut oil, garlic, parsley, basil, rosemary and salt until thoroughly combined. Drizzle over the bread slices and spread out evenly with a spoon.
- Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden and toasty. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
I personally love making garlic bread with coconut oil instead of olive oil. I feel like it makes the bread a much lighter dish and also brings out a lot of the garlic flavor. This side dish would be perfect for Easter if you had your ham pre-ordered from the store and were looking for something homemade to add to your dinner. Not only is this a simple recipe but it’s ready in about 20 minutes or less! This is also great if your having a “non-traditional” Easter dinner. Sometimes our family will have lasagna on Christmas so this garlic bread recipe would fit in perfectly with the meal.
