Sweet and spreadable like butter. Spread on chicken, lamb or bread or serve with grilled vegetables or as a dip for cheese (stilton or brie). Add to hummus for texture and extra flavor.
1 head of garlic
Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Olive Oil Etcetera
Thyme, fresh or dried (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F. Slice the top of the garlic head off exposing the cluster of cloves. Brush/drizzle with Arbequina extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with thyme. Place in a shallow baking pan and bake for 45 minutes or wrap in foil and cook until tender, maybe 25 minutes.
