Yield: 4 servings
|1||Head garlic (try elephant garlic)|
Heat oven to 300 degrees. Remove loose, papery skins from garlic. Put whole head, root end down in a shallow baking dish. Roast for 1 to 1¼ hours, until garlic is very soft. Cool until easy to handle.
Squeeze the soft garlic out of the skin. Spread on toast or bread for a delicious treat.
Variation: Mix the roasted garlic with 3 cups cooked white beans.
Process in blender or food processor until smooth. Add ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper for hot spice.
