Recipe Card


  • 1 bulb of garlic
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
  • handful of grated parmesan
  • pinch of salt,
  • pinch of pepper,
  • 1 baguette


  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 400°F.

  • Step 2

    Drizzle the garlic bulb with olive oil and sprinkle over sea salt. Wrap in foil and roast in the oven for 30 minutes. Set aside to cool.

  • Step 3

    Put the soft butter into a bowl and add the parsley, olive oil, chili flakes, parmesan and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Mash everything together using a fork. Squeeze the roasted garlic out of the bulb and mash it into the butter.

  • Step 4

    Slice the baguette in half lengthways and cut each half into 3 pieces (I like to trim off the ends). Spread a generous amount of garlic butter on each slice. Sprinkle over extra grated parmesan.

  • Step 5

    Bake the garlic bread for 12-14 minutes until golden and enjoy immediately.
