Baby Garlic

Is there anything more delicious than roasted baby garlic? Our bunches of baby garlic are perfect for roasting & can be used in so many ways.

Trim the stalks of four or five bulbs, peel away the outer layers & using a knife cut off the top of the bulb exposing the individual cloves.

Then pop them into an oven dish with a good splash or two a good quality olive oil.

Roast for 25 - 35 minutes at about 160 degrees, until they are soft to touch.

When cooled squeeze out the garlic from it's skin into a separate bowl. It comes out quite easily, this bit can be a bit messy but fun! While garlic is traditionally known as having a big & bold taste you will find that roasting it produces a more subtle, slightly nutty & buttery flavour. Here are a few things you can do with your roasted garlic:

  • spread onto sour dough toast, eat on it's own or add anything you like. Cherry tomatoes & spinach, olives, caramelised onion & buffalo mozzarella, rocket & feta, bacon & parsley
  • turn it into aioli. You can cheat and use bought good quality mayonnaise or make your own using organic eggs & local olive oil
  • buy some potatoes from a road side stall, bake them and while still hot slice in the centre and add butter & a big spoonful of roasted garlic, yum!

To order your baby garlic or any of other other varieties of biodynamic, Australian grown garlic see our side bar for ordering details. Happy roasting!!
