In a mixing bowl, toss the garlic pieces with the olive oil to coat evenly. Spread
the garlic pieces evenly on the bottom of a small baking pan and roast until their
edges begin to brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
Remove the pan and with a spoon or spatula, scrape up and turn the garlic; then
return the pan to the oven and roast until the garlic is uniformly golden brown,
about 15 minutes more. Set aside to cool completely.
Put the roasted garlic pieces and 2 tablespoons of the water in a food processor
fitted with the steel blade. Process, scraping the bowl down occasionally, until
the garlic is pureed to a paste with the consistency of smooth peanut butter. If
necessary, add the remaining water. Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate until
ready to use.
Yield: 1/2 cup
