Garlic dip and quick update

Friday, July 02, 2010

So I usually end the week with a vlog... and maybe I still will later. But for now, I'm uber busy at work, working out and teaching. My plans this weekend is to go wine tasting tomorrow, I have a hiking date on Sunday and then hiking with another friend on Monday since I have the day.

As requested, here is the garlic dip recipe (estimated)

8 elephant garlic cloves, peeled and rinsed, chopped into quarters
6 regular garlic cloves, peeled and rinsed
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 package (4 ounces) cream cheese or Neufchatel cheese, softened
1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream
1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar (do not use regular, it will look like barf)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon dry white wine
sea salt or kosher salt to taste (a pinch or two)
Fresh ground black pepper to taste

Toss first three ingredients in a baking dish and bake 25-40 minutes until roasted/browned, but not squishy (you will have to watch)
Let cool for a while. Then put roasted garlic and all other ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth. You may need to spatula chunks off the side between pulses to get it all mixed.

Chill for a few hours and serve with breads and crudite!

    Elephant garlic is actually more of an onion/leek so its different favor than garlic and more to add to dish just in size.

    Sounds yummy! Just out of curiosity, why do you choose to use both elephant garlic and regular? I have never used the elephant garlic before but am a total garlic lover!
