Roasted Garlic Oil
Infused oils are a common sight in specialty food shops, but they can’t rival the real deal coming out of your kitchen. Get your best olive oil out and start crushing garlic cloves. A short stint in the oven will produce a smooth and round garlic flavor that takes grilled vegetables and dressings somewhere refined. A healthy spoonful to finish pasta dishes works very well, too.
- Serves: 3 persons
- 3heads garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
- 3cups extra-virgin olive oil
- Kosher salt
Step 1Preheat oven to 350.
Step 2In a small ovenproof deep dish — a pie plate would work — combine all ingredients, and set in oven for about 20 minutes until the garlic is softened and golden and the oil is fragrant. We don’t remove the cloves.
