- 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
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
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.
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.
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.
Bake the garlic bread for 12-14 minutes until golden and enjoy immediately.
