The simplicity of a ROASTED GARLIC BULB is a very good thing!

This post about ROASTED GARLIC BULB is one half recipe, one half lesson on an essential ingredient. If you’re here because of your love of garlic, you came to the right place. We just love it and use it often when we create and craft recipes. If garlic is new to you, click HERE to learn more about it.

Sometimes we incorporate raw garlic into recipes, like when we made this TOMATO AVOCADO SALAD. Other times we sauté it up to soften it a bit as we did in our BEEF CHILI recipe. The way we see things, you simply can’t go wrong with garlic.

Another way to enjoy garlic is to roast it. Something magical happens when we take a head of garlic, ripe in its robust and pungent flavours, and expose it to heat. The garlic slowly caramelizes as it roasts and then softens while also giving off an appetizing aroma. We’re big fans of the mellow, nutty flavour of roasted garlic.

A bulb of garlic

We’ve used roasted garlic bulb in our ROASTED GARLIC HUMMUS and in our tangy SMOKED EGGPLANT DIP recipes. It’s also the reason our GARLIC MASHED POTATOES are so popular. Imagine mashing potatoes with cream, butter and the nutty, softened cloves of a head of roasted garlic? Seriously, these taters are incredible!

Try the nutty flavour of a ROASTED GARLIC, you won’t be disappointed. Enjoy!
