Roasted Garlic White Bean Dip

Roasting the garlic in this dip takes the bite out of the garlic and gives it such a wonderful flavour! If you want to skip this step only add a couple of cloves of crushed fresh garlic… I don’t think I need to explain why!

  1. Roast the garlic: Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut the top off of the garlic head to expose the top of the cloves. Place the head of garlic in the centre of a small piece of aluminium foil leaving the garlic paper and cloves intact, and drizzle with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Wrap the foil tightly around the head of garlic, place on a small baking sheet or dish, and bake for approximately 30 minutes, until the cloves are soft and light brown. Remove the cloves from the head by squeezing them (they will just pop out) once cool.Roast the garlic: Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut the top off of the garlic head to expose the top of the cloves.
