Ingredients for 4 servings:

 

1 large head garlic

1/4 cup olive oil, divided

1 sprig fresh thyme

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Kosher salt and white pepper to taste

Garnish: grated parmesan cheese and minced parsley

 

Directions:

 

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.  Trim the tip off the head of garlic to expose the tips of the cloves.  Place the clove in a garlic roaster or large piece of heavy aluminum foil.  Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over the top of the garlic head and place a sprig of thyme on top.  Cover with a lid or tightly seal the foil closed and bake for one hour.  Remove and cool.

 

Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves into a flat dish.  Mash the garlic working in the lemon juice and remaining olive oil.  Season to taste  with salt and pepper.
