Day 47: Garlic Spread

    Today I tried to recreate my aunts famous garlic spread. This simple recipe has been a family favorite at many of my family events. This time I decided to serve it spread on top of a whole wheat baguette that I picked up at Ralph's the other day.

Garlic Spread:
2 heads of garlic
Olive Oil

    Step 1: Cut off the top of the garlic just enough to show the garlic heads. Place each head on a piece of foil large enough to enclose the entire head of garlic. Pour a little bit of olive oil on top, before enclosing the whole thing in tin foil.

   Step 2: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and roast for about 45 minutes. When done you can scoop out a whole clove and serve it on bread or crackers. This is a great appetizer.

   Along with the garlic spread on whole wheat bread, I also had a great salad which consisted of ripe tomatoes, cucumbers, and olive marinara dressing.


  1. That sounds delicious, and really easy too! I'll have to try that!

  2. Is your aunt a vegan?

  3. No, my aunt is not vegan. She does have some great recipes though that I steal all the time that are vegan, such as this great garlic spread recipe.
