Roasted smoked garlic
Our roasting whole, in its skin, method gives you a basis to make lots of other dishes, as well as a bit of preservation, so don’t worry, you don’t have to eat it all in one go!
Ingredients:1 smoked garlic bulb
Approx 2 tablespoons of oil (preferably our smoked olive oil or smoked rapeseed oil)
Preparation:Prep time: 1 minute
Cook time: 30-40 minutes
Serves: 2-4 people depending on use
Instructions:Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan oven 180°C/Gas mark 6
Take a large (oven proof) coffee cup, ramekin or garlic roaster and line it with a large piece of tin foil, with the edges hanging over the rim
Place the garlic (whole with skin on) in the foil and drizzle with the oil (use as much as you can as this is used later on, so none goes to waste!)
Fold up the foil to form a garlic parcel
Then bake at 200°C for approximately 30 mins
Take the whole thing out of the oven and either eat straight from the foil (be very careful as everything will be very hot), with some crusty bread and maybe some baked Camembert (yummy!!) or....
Allow the roast garlic to cool throughly
Tip the oil into a ramekin or small bowl and squeeze out the soft sweet smokey garlic into the oil. Keep the husk of the garlic, which can be boiled up with your favourite stock for a soup later on
