just a tip | roast extra garlic
Hiya! Here it is the first "just a tip" of 2014 and its my new favorite. Next time you roast potatoes, squash, a chicken, whatever you might roast - throw a few whole cloves of garlic on the pan. They'll roast too - getting all mild and sweet - and then you can save them for later use.
Roasted garlic is delicious whipped into butter, smeared on garlic bread, but its also really love in a vinaigrette or in pesto. For all you mamas - roasting garlic makes it much more mellow - so you can add it to pasta and your toddler might still approve* and you'll enjoy the extra flavor.
*(I make no guarantees when it come to toddler and food: My pancake loving toddler turned them down this morning, sigh.)
