By cooking these garlic heads slowly, they become very mellow, soft, and creamy. This makes them easier to digest, so you can enjoy the garlic without the aftereffects! Serve them along with an Italian dish, roast lamb, or seafood, or as an appetizer. For added appeal, serve with a chunky tomato basil sauce.
- 4 heads garlic
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Dash freshly ground pepper
- 1 1-pound loaf The French Connection bread (page 81),
- or any lactose-free French bread (see page 25)
- 3 tablespoons safflower oil margarine, Hollywood, melted
- 1 teaspoon chopped parsley
- Grated Parmesan cheese alternative, Soyco, or imported aged Parmesan cheese, for seasoning
Prepare the garlic by chopping off the top quarter inch of the heads. Remove any loose, papery skin, but leave the heads whole. Start your barbecue grill according to the manufacturer's instructions. Position the rack 4 to 6 inches above the flame or heat.
In a bowl, mix the olive oil, oregano, salt, and pepper with a fork until well blended. Toss in the garlic heads and coat with the mixture evenly. Slice the French bread; brush with melted safflower margarine. Set aside.
Put the coated garlic heads in the center of the grilling rack on the barbecue. Grill for 30 to 40 minutes, turning several times with tongs. (The cloves should feel very soft when done.) During the last few minutes, place the French bread slices on heavy-duty foil and place alongside the garlic heads. Lightly toast both sides of the slices, then remove from the grill and keep warm.
Remove the garlic heads when they are very soft. Squeeze the whole cloves and they will separate from their skins. Place the soft garlic pieces on top of the warm French bread slices and sprinkle with parsley and the Parmesan cheese alternative or freshly grated aged Parmesan. Serve warm.
Appetizer or side dish, this makes a great accompaniment!
