Roasted Garlic Puree

Use as a condiment for lamb, pork or beef.

Recipe Ingredients

4 large heads garlic

1/4 cup olive oil

1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


Chop off bottom of garlic head, and separate whole cloves, leaving tight outer covering intact. Place cloves in a shallow 8-inch square baking dish, and drizzle with olive oil. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes. Cool and drain; remove skins. Roast garlic may be eaten as is or pureed for smoother texture.

To puree, position knife blade in food processor bowl; add garlic, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Process 30 seconds or until almost smooth, scraping sides of processor bowl occasionally.
