Unfamiliar with roasting garlic? Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and I have left you a brief tutorial 🙂
Put all the ingredients except salt and pepper into a food processor, and pulse until smooth.
Taste, and salt and pepper to your liking.
Garnish with a few fresh chives, and refrigerate until ready to serve!
How to Roast Garlic
Take one third off the top of a whole head of garlic.
Place in a foil “bowl,” and drizzle with olive oil.
Put in a 425 degree farenheit oven for about 25 minutes.
Garlic will become fragrant and golden on top.
Remove from oven and let cool.
The cloves will now be soft and easy to remove from the head. Squish out the cloves you want to use, and refrigerate the others to put into something else. Like garlic mashed potatoes!
