Off With Their Heads




Roasted garlic paste is a staple in our fridge.  I add is to anything and everything- A dollop to a dish can really add a nice subtle punch.  I also eat it on toast because love it that much.  It keeps well in in the fridge, in a clean glass jar, for weeks.
My grandmother swears by a few things-garlic, honey and vinegar being at the top of her list- she's 88. 
It is super easy to make: chop the heads off a bunch of garlic, add olive oil that's been salt and peppered throw some chopped rosemary on top, cover with foil and roast at 350 for about an hour.



Pop them like pimples and give them a stir to make it into a paste.

This is one of our most favorite things to eat (we're having it tonight). We spread it on thinly sliced toasted bread with a little goat cheese and olive oil, simply divine. I've never roasted it with rosemary but I will be trying that next time for sure!
Also, I posted about honey today! Funny.

This is so great! Swear, I've always meant to look this up... I've had it at restaurants before and it's delicious on rolls. Thank you so much for sharing!

Sounds delicious! I use so much garlic in my cooking too and I swear by the benefit of it too!

Carol- I call it like I see it and that is exactly how I feel after squeezing a bunch!
Dani- awesome!
Everton- I love it on chunky fresh bread- you will enjoy the Rosemary with garlic! And I will check out your honey post!
Sherri- by we I am assuming you are going to make B do it!? It has a lot of ingredients but really it's just chop, pour and stir! The garlic is even easier!
Maggie- welcome!
Gabbi- welcome and thanks for following!
3- I love all your stuff- I am glad you feel the benefits too
Le Blog- So welcome!
Thanks for all the comments!

I LOVE roasted garlic but I have never thought to store it in a jar in the fridge! How many weeks does it keep?

dotblogg said...

I love to add garlic everywhere, but never tried to roast it (why?), I feel like buying a whole bunch of garlic and try your recipe!
take care
Just

DrollGirl- You should try it- quickly before having your oven on for an hour is killer!
Nancy- I have only had to throw it out once and I've been doing this for many years- Over a month- but like honey use a clean utensil each time.
Just- that is what I do- I buy a bag and make a bunch at one time.

This reminds me of two summers ago when I got a TON of garlic from a co-op and roasted it. It was soooo good!

Sarah said...

Hmmm GARLIC! I swear by them too! Almost everything i do has garlic! :D YUM!

sherri said...

Ren - sad, but you are probably correct in your assessment of the situation.

great caption! definitely made me laugh when i saw all the little headless bulbs. haha
you are such a good cook and your photos of the foods are awesome. unfortunately i only cook for company/parties b/c i have picky kids, picky husband and me gluten free. what a fun family, huh? hahah but the recipes you post are always so simple and easy that it doesn't intimidate me or think i need to wait for company so thank you for that! plus even if i don't make them right away, i'm the kind of person who loves to read cookbooks especially when they have great pics, and yours are like that. :)

Hmm I'll have to try this, I love garlic too (but I've never had it on toast!).

Maybe You'll Enjoy These Too...
