Really, it’s not cheating. It’s just another method of getting that sweet, mellow, roasted garlic flavor without heating up your whole house. As a bonus, you have flavorful garlic-infused oil left over.
Use the softened garlic for whatever you’d like! Add to potato salad, spread on toast, use in a vinaigrette, eat it with a fork…
Another option, once the garlic has softened, is to smash it into the oil with a pinch of salt for a ridiculously tasty garlic spread. Try it on pizza!
- 25 whole cloves garlic, peeled
- 1/2 C. olive oil
Combine garlic and oil in a small saucepan. Over medium heat, bring oil to very low simmer.
Continue cooking 15 minutes, or until garlic has softened and is golden in color.
Done! Allow garlic to cool and remove from oil (save that oil for another use!) or smash garlic into oil with a fork for a scrumptious spread.
