There are a myriad of things to put roasted garlic into.
For this reason, I always try to keep some on hand. Never had roasted garlic? It has an amazing flavor that can’t be beat by fresh garlic. All you do is cut off the top of a head of garlic, drizzle about 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the top, wrap the entire garlic head in aluminum foil and roast in the oven at 400F for 30 to 40 minutes.. Your whole house will smell DIVINE!
Chickpeas-one of the most nutritious of all legumes, high in calcium, phosphorus, and potassium. Exceptionally high in iron and Vitamin C. Rich in essential fatty acids and provide fat free quality protein
Besides adding this little ingredient to my mashed potatoes, guacamole, veggies etc, I decided to add it to my hummus. Making hummus at home is super easy and much more cost effective than buying the ready made stuff at the store.
