Day 139: Garlic Spread

Yield: ½ cup
Time (Start to Finish): 1 hour

1 head roasted garlic
lemon juice
salt and pepper
olive oil

1. roast the head of garlic until soft and spreadable, you can deskin first or just cut the top off, roast in foil with a little oil and salt and squeeze the cloves out
2. in a blender, add the cloves of garlic, a tsp of mustard, ½ of a lemon juiced, a little olive oil salt and pepper and blend until smooth. Feel free to add more of any in order to make a good consistency.

Rating: 3.5 strawberries
Notes: This is pretty good to put with a cheese platter and crackers. It is very garlicy, so its only for those who love it, which I do!!! I don’t normally like mustard, but it cuts this down a lot and I think is the perfect addition. I put it with some toasts, and some brie, so you must try it. It doesn’t take very long to make and really impresses people…but…don’t expect to be kissing many people after eating this one!
