Recently I went into a big shopping centre, usually I only shop in the farmers market for produce and at my local grocery store for the other stuff but I wanted to but Carpet Cleaning solution so I decided to make one stop. I did not find carpet cleaning solution; however I did purchase a kilo of garlic. And it was a beautiful kilo of garlic. Wouldn't you agree?
What to do with an entire kilogram of garlic? I know.. I know.. Its going to take a while for this stuff to go bad, and yet I was inspired to roast the whole damn thing. What is more beautiful then garlic? Roasted Garlic! Here is the sexy before and after:
So simple. Just cut off the tops and line on a baking sheet, drizzle with some Extra Virgin and sprinkle with salt and pepper, and pop into a 350 degree oven until tender, I think about half an hour, it can take longer if your doing a whole kilo, it was just over an hour. Take it out when it is golden brown and mushy... don't let it get all dry and bitter - I'll send the garlic police after you... seriously... I will, and it won't be pretty.
Maybe I love this garlic a little too much.
