Is there an easier way to add bulk flavor to your food than squeezing in some soft, caramely, roasted garlic? I think not. It’s my go-to for bumping up the interest in a simple recipe and a day when I have some waiting for me in the fridge is a good day. Make a bunch in advance and arm yourself with maximum tastiness for any situation. Like, a noodle situation, a cassoulet situation, or a chili situation.Print
Smooth, creamy, caramely roasted garlic – the perfect thing to bump up the flavor in any savory recipe or to spread on crostini for an easy appetizer.
