Roasted Garlic Bulb – There’s nothing quite like it!
This post is one half recipe, one half lesson on an essential ingredient. The four items used in this recipe are readily available and the end result is quite simply, heavenly.
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. I love the aromas the process creates and the mellow, nutty flavour of the cooked and cooled roasted garlic bulb is both unique and addictive.
We’ve used roasted garlic bulb in our Roasted Garlic Hummus and in our tangy Baba Ghanoush recipes but I promise to dream up more uses for it in some forthcoming recipes too – yes, it’s that good!
