I’m raving about this ever-so-simple dish:  Roasted garlic.  Why haven’t I been doing this for dinner ALL THE TIME?  It’s amazing as an appetizer or a side, it’s ridiculously easy to make, and (always appealing to me) it’s inexpensive.

You can find recipes on-line anywhere–such as here  or here.

To be honest, you could probably wing it without a recipe…just put your oven up to 400, sozzle some olive oil on those garlic heads, wrap in foil and pop in the oven on a baking tray for about 45 minutes. You will be stunned at how gourmet and amazing these things are for the ridiculously low-level of effort it took to prep them.

Big warning. You will probably eat a TON of garlic when you make these, and your body will smell accordingly.  As will your farts. So maybe not a first-date food….
