It’s not really butter. But that’s what makes this roasted garlic spread so wonderful.

Garlic cloves slowly roasted in olive oil until the garlic becomes aromatic.

The olive oil will be infused with garlic, perfect for salads or drizzling over your fish or meat for flavor.

The garlic cloves become soft and easy to spread, just like butter, perfect for making garlic bread.

Save this recipe because you’re going to be using it a lot in the future.
