Garlic, glorious garlic!
When I was a kid growing up, we had zero spices in our house. It just wasn’t a thing. Oh, we had salt, but we didn’t even really use pepper–I remember quite clearly having 2 salt shakers instead.
As I got older, and started to learn more about cooking, and therefore seasoning, garlic was probably the first “spice” I ever started to experiment with. At first, it was dried garlic powder, but then later, I went right for the real thing, and started adding raw garlic to my cooking.
I love the flavour it brings. Garlic really is a superstar. And we are not far off now from Garlic Scape season, which is one of my favourite times of the year!
Garlic is an amazing ingredient, but roasted garlic is even more amazing! When you roast it, it becomes sweet and almost nutty. It becomes soft and buttery, and you can add it to so many things–like sauces, which it will help to thicken.
Here’s just a few things you can do with roasted garlic:
- Add it to hummus
- Add it to pasta sauce
- Spread it on toast
- Add it to salad dressings
- Add it to soup
- Add it to mashed potatoes
- On pizza or nachos
It’s really versatile! Oh–and really simple to make. You don’t even need one of those fancy garlic baker thingies.
