I told my husband last night that I can't believe all the incredible foods that I've tasted, all because of him! You see, my name suits me right, with food I can be Picky Vicky :-) I try to think of foods he would love and duplicate them, this recipe is one of them! I found this one on food.com. It makes the most perfect condiment for a sandwich, especially roast beef, as we had last night! Trust me, it doesn't even taste like a ton of garlic. Roasting garlic is great! It is milder than raw garlic. In fact, raw garlic is two to four times stronger in flavor. Garlic becomes very mellow and easy to spread after cooking.
Roasted Garlic Mayo:
-12 Garlic Cloves
-1 Tbls Veg. Oil
-1 Tbls Fresh Lemon Juice
-1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce (and say this name really fast three times!)
-1 cup Mayonnaise
-1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (I used 1 Tbls dried)
-1/4 cup chopped fresh basil (I used 1 Tbls dried)
-S&P to taste
1. Place garlic and oil in small baking dish, stir well.
2. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, till soft and golden.
3. Cool to room temperature.
4. Place garlic mixture, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce in blender. Blend till smooth.
5. Add mayo and herbs, process till smooth.
*Store in the fridge
*NOTE* if you're unsure about the garlic, when you buy a big clump of garlic, that is the Bulb, if you break it up, it then turns into little cloves. Just peel the skin away and use that in this recipe.
