Thank you to Collective Bias (#CBias) for sending me out to get the September issue of Better Homes & Gardens. I was inspired to find a delicious something to make and flipping through the pages, it was difficult to choose just one idea to spark my creative mojo.
But as that thought popped in my head, I found it…my inspiration! This page is absolutely stunning and the food was all so yummy.
In particular, the different showcased spreads sounded so wonderful that I knew immediately I wanted to make a garlicky spread to go with my naan that was ready to be eaten at home. It was just waiting for the perfect accompaniment.
After a trip to the store to see what was available and pick up a few items, I came home ready to prepare a Goat Cheese and Rosemary Roasted Garlic.
And it turned out wonderfully! The goat cheese had the perfect bite to match the sweetness of the honey while the rosemary added a wonderful fragrance and flavor to bring out all the goodness that is garlic.
Of course after a few bites, I realized immediately that this was not date food. Who cares?! I wouldn’t want to share it anyways. 🙂
Goat Cheese and Rosemary Roasted Garlic
2 bulbs garlic
1 tsp dried rosemary leaves, plus extra for garnish
1 tbsp honey, plus extra for garnish
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp butter
salt & pepper
1-2 tbsp goat cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Using a knife, remove the bottoms of each garlic bulb to expose the insides of the cloves. Place the garlic cut-side down in a small baking dish. Sprinkle the rosemary around the garlic; then drizzle the honey and olive oil over the cloves. Add the butter to the baking dish and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Roast for 35-40 minutes.
Remove the baking dish from the oven and carefully transfer the roasted garlic to your plate cut-side up. Top the garlic with goat cheese (as much as you’d like), a drizzle of honey and sprinkle of rosemary. Serve with naan; I drizzled additional honey over my naan for added sweetness.
