This is going to be a short but hopefully valuable blog post.
This easy, delicious roasted garlic bread spread can serve more than one function. It can be a dip, you can spice up your food with it we spread it on a fresh baguette. It was divine.
Life is too short to worry about garlic breath. Share it with your loved ones so you don’t have to worry about it. 🙂
I am always in search of spreads. In Hungary typical breakfast is bread or bread rolls spread with butter or margarine, some type of lunch meat and veggies. Although I am not a fan of lunch meats, too many fats, nitrates, sodium, and in some cases too many additives and unless you buy premium brands they contain mechanically separated meat (MSM). There are regulations for how much MSM lunch meats and other products can contain. Still, I choose not to consume them if I have other options.
So I became fond of homemade spreads. My favourites include hummus, ajvar, roasted garlic spread, nut butters, guacamole, pesto, jams….and the list goes on.
I hope you will try and enjoy this recipe.
- two heads of garlic
- grated parmesan
- olive oil
- lemon juice
- salt, pepper, oregano
- Preheat the oven to 200 °C (400F).
- Cut the ends of the garlic heads, drizzle each with one tablespoon olive oil, wrap the aluminum foils around the garlic heads, and roast in the oven for 40 minutes to one hour until the cloves are soft. Let them cool for 20-30 minutes.
- Once cool, squeeze the cloves out and put them in a bowl. Mash them using a fork.
- Add in the grated parmesan, dried oregano, salt, ground black pepper and lemon juice, and some olive oil. Mix well using a spoon.
You can make this dip with different flavor additions such as hot sauce, avocado, roasted red pepper.
Make the roasted garlic beforehand to save time. I can't give you specific measurements because I measured the ingredients with heart and tasted them along the process. 🙂
